The USDA Southeast Climate Hub with other USDA agencies and university Extension experts, have developed a set of guides for Florida agricultural producers. The guides are each tailored to a specific agricultural commodity and designed to help produces prepare for and recover from hurricane events.

The guides are housed on the USDA Southeast Climate Hub Website. The titles shown below in blue are links to full text, printable versions of the corresponding guides. The titles that are shown in black are coming soon. This post will be updated periodically to include links to the additional guides as they become available.

We want to hear from you. To provide you with the best available guidance, we will update the guides in early 2021 after producers and specialists have had a chance to implement the guidance, assess recommendations, and provide feedback. Please send all comments and suggestions for improving these guides to Michael Gavazzi, USDA Southeast Climate Hub, at
