TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis received an endorsement from the Florida Farm Bureau Federation’s FarmPAC, the state’s largest agriculture grassroots organization.

The announcement was made at the Florida Strawberry Growers Association in Dover, Florida.

“Our industry cannot afford to lose Governor DeSantis’s support in Tallahassee, and Charlie Crist will not be the friend that Governor DeSantis has been,” said Jeb Smith, President of Florida Farm Bureau.

Smith continued, “Governor DeSantis understands the value of hard work and dedication, which translates to efforts that allow our industry to thrive.”

In June of this year, DeSantis signed SB 1000, Nutrient Application Rates. This bill authorizes citrus producers to use written recommendations from certified professionals to tailor their nutrient application rates under certain circumstances while complying with state water quality standards.

DeSantis said, “The men and women of Florida’s agriculture industry put food on the table for millions of people in our state and across the nation. As Governor, I am proud to have stood up for rural communities and look forward to providing continued support for our farmers and ranchers across Florida.”

The governor previously created the broadband opportunity program to expand broadband internet in rural and underserved areas.

This year, $30 million has been allocated to the Rural Infrastructure Fund which will help with projects that encourage job creation and capital investment in rural economies.

In March of this year, DeSantis announced the USDA’s disaster designation for 17 counties and 10 contiguous counties that were impacted by the freezing temperatures in January.
