II. COMMERCIAL VEGETABLES

A. Florida Drip Irrigation Survey -
Vegetables.

With the help of the vegetable
agents, I have completed a survey of drip
irrigation use by vegetable growers in
Florida for the production year (spring and
fall). Ninety-one percent of the counties
returned surveys with all major drip using
counties participating in the survey. I will
try to summarize the results of the survey
as I have time to analyze the results. We
have almost 42,000 acres of drip irrigated
vegetables in Florida. About 86% (35,400
acres) of the acreage is accounted for in 5
counties: Hillsborough (12,000 acres),
Dade (9440 acres), Collier (5360 acres),
Gadsden (5000 acres), and Manatee (3600
acres). Other counties with at least 500
acres are Hardee (700), Hendry (1000),
Hamilton (660), Jackson (585), and Osceola
(580). Other counties with significant
acreage are Bay (100), Alachua (285),
Holmes (100), Levy (120), Madison (150),
Marion (150), Orange (425), eastern Palm
Beach (156), Pasco (200), Sarasota (250),
Sumter (285), Suwannee (115), and Walton
(320).

III. VEGETABLE GARDENING

A. Florida Record Vegetables July
15, 1993 Update.

If you are new to Extension (agent
or Master Gardener) you may not be aware
that I try to keep tabs on giant size
vegetables grown in Florida and who grows
them. County Extension agents must
verify sizes and weights and submit the
official entry form to me for filing. I
acknowledge the entry if it breaks the
current record, and send the agent a
certificate for the grower.

Since last July (1992) there have
been 17 new records set. Record-size
veggies are grown everywhere, as indicated
by 43 records in 21 counties. Table 1
shows the number of records held by
county, while Table 2 lists the current
records (as of the date of this newsletter).
Thanks to you agents for your help in this
endeavor which the press and readers
seem to enjoy.
