Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018

The Florida citrus industry was already in big trouble even before Hurricane Irma started closing in. Now experts are worried that the storm could be the final straw that tips many growers into bankruptcy.

The problem until now has not been storms but a disease, known as citrus greening. It’s spread by an insect, and leaves the fruit green, bitter and unusable. As a result, Florida orange production has declined by about 50% in just the last five years.

“The citrus industry here is fighting for its very existence,” said Lisa Lochridge, spokeswoman for the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association. “This is the last thing we need.”

Even with that reduced production, the state’s citrus industry employs more than 45,000 people and generates more than $8 billion in total sales, according to state data. If Irma does strike Florida’s orchards, it will be an economic disaster for the already struggling industry said Tom Spreen, professor emeritus at the University of Florida.
