Florida's Disappearing Farm Land

Thousands of people move to Florida every week. Demographers predict the state’s population will grow by 10 million in the next 25 years. Many of these new Floridians will live in housing developments on land that is now home to cattle ranches, citrus groves and vegetable farms. Can Florida agriculture find ways to adapt and coexist with development? We’ll explore the question on our next Florida Matters with our guests.
