The prospective area for harvest of 11 selected fresh market vegetables during the winter quarter is forecast at 183,900 acres. In addition, Florida's citrus industry took significant hits as a result of Hurricane Wilma, which struck Florida on October 24, 2005, yet utilization appears to be ahead of that of 2004 for most categories.
