Innovation and relentless energy helped Ed Pines (center) earn the 2017 Citrus Achievement Award. Who will be selected for the honor in 2018? That’s up to you.

Turning 18 years old is a big deal. With the coming of age is a sense of pride, privilege, and status. Florida Grower magazine’s Citrus Achievement Award is marking that noteworthy milestone this year. The honor has matured into the gold standard of industry recognition for those who have made and continue to make a significant impact within and even beyond the Florida citrus community.

Sponsored by Arysta LifeScience, the Citrus Achievement Award is presented to an individual grower, allied member, legislator, researcher, or anyone else who stands out through leadership, innovation, dedication, and active participation.

Once all submissions have been received, they will be reviewed by a committee comprised of past Award recipients and related industry experts. A winner will be chosen, announced, and featured as Florida Grower’s June issue cover story. Subsequently, the award will be presented during the Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference presented by Florida Citrus Mutual in June.

As always, we thank you for your feedback and time in helping celebrate the finest Florida citrus has to offer.
