Deadline — Florida Citrus, Part 1

Over the last 20 years, half of all Florida citrus groveland has disappeared. Some of that’s due to growing cities that are encroaching on agricultural land. But more of it is due to a lethal disease called Citrus Greening. Once a tree is infected, the rest of the grove is not far behind.

The decline is slow, but the result is always the same — another lost grove. We take a deep dive to show you how farmers are coping with Citrus Greening — and some of the ingenious pivots they’ve found in their fight against it. We’ll also take a trip to Port Everglades to look at the safety net in place to keep foreign pests and diseases out of our food supply.
