Dantzler all but admits that CRDF has failed the growers

“In a recent statement, Rick Dantzler is, chief operating officer of the Citrus Research and Development Foundation (CRDF), didn’t really talk glowingly about CRDF’s accomplishments,” Citrus Industry reports.

“Rather, he started off by telling how far the Florida citrus industry has declined since CRDF was formed in 2009 primarily to find a solution to HLB.”

“We cannot act as though our research has been more successful than it has been,” Dantzler told Florida Citrus Mutual’s board of directors on June 8.
