Citrus Industry Celebration Expected to be Bigger and Better

Ron Hamel, executive vice president of the Gulf Citrus Growers Association (GCGA), is gearing up for the annual Citrus Industry Celebration hosted by the GCGA. The event will be held on Wednesday night, August 16, on Florida Gulf Coast University’s campus in Alico Arena. Hamel says this year’s celebration is expected to be bigger and better than in the past years.




Pre-registration for Citrus Expo is now open! All pre-registered growers will be eligible to win a John Deere gun safe courtesy of Everglades Farm Equipment. As growers pre-register online, they are encouraged to participate in a very short, anonymous survey on bactericide use. Take the survey here. Conducted by AgNet Media in cooperation with the Citrus Research and Development Foundation, the 2017 survey will build on knowledge gathered from the 2016 survey. Results of the survey will be presented during the Citrus Expo seminar program.

Complete details on the seminar schedule will be available soon. To learn more about Citrus Expo, or to register, visit
