Although some producers are replanting orange groves, using high-density plantings and the latest production technologies, others are leaving former groveland fallow or seriously exploring other non-citrus crops.

And with economy picking up, will some of those former groves be replanted with houses? These are all tough questions that the industry and individual growers will continue to grapple with in the coming months and years.

Let’s hope that the absence of orange juice on Winter Haven’s city logo was just a marketing ploy and isn’t a harbinger of things to come.
