The 2013 Landscape Show Is In The Books
Congratulations to the FNGLA for a great 2013 Landscape Show. The new hall was fresh, and the education and networking opportunities were a real bonus. Thanks to all of you who came by SMR Farms' booth to hear about our high-quality material: Florida No.1 air root pruned containerized and RPG field-grown trees. This is material that received premium care during the tough times, is looking for a new home, and we have the numbers for your largest project! So do the right thing and give Chris Medico a call at 941-812-5696 for pricing and availability. You'll be glad you did.

SMR Farms Named a 2013 Tropicana Grower of the Year
For the 5th straight year, SMR Farms has been named a Tropicana Grower of the Year. The Grower of the Year award is based on fruit quality, load quality, fruit variety mix and agribusiness management. The management practices component of the award looks at harvesting methods, grove practices, labor programs and commitment to agricultural sustainability.
SMR Farms currently is partnering with Tropicana on a multi-year citrus fertilization project aimed at comparing traditional fertilizers with low-carbon-footprint products as part of Tropicana’s widely-acclaimed and industry-leading global sustainability efforts.
“It’s a great feeling to see our citrus operations recognized in this way. In spite of the very real and difficult challenges we face in the citrus industry, our production team continues to do a great job.” said SMR Farms President, Mac Carraway.
