Previously I’ve reported on agricultural losses due to Hurricane Michael in Georgia and Alabama. Today Morning Ag Clips reported that Florida’s loss to crops due to the storm was a total of $158 million. Of that, $51 million was from the almost complete loss of cotton in the state. Greenhouses, nurseries and floriculture lost $39 million, and peanuts lost $22 million. Damage to the area’s livestock was around $23 million. In addition, Florida lost $9 million in vegetables and melons, $4 million in fruits and $3 million in tree nuts, including pecans. This does not even count the loss of $1.3 billion from downed forests and pine plantations. You can read more at
