Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam opened to a packed house in Blountstown, FL late Tuesday afternoon. Area residents participated in a listening session hosted by his department.
Reviewing the latest information available regarding damage assessments, Putnam pointed out there has been devastating damage to many crops including some that have no established programs in place to help them rebuild.
Many political representatives and other entities were present to answer questions of area farmers looking for various types of help.
Stay tuned for comments from some of those involved, and for more details from this meeting as the Florida panhandle and other areas of our deep southeast region continue to deal with the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Michael.
