Could Bamboo be a Viable Crop for Citrus Growers in Florida?




In this week's North American Ag Spotlight Chrissy Wozniak talks with Kevin Barley, President of The Florida Bamboo Growers Association. We dive into the lesser-known but deeply rooted agricultural landscape of Florida with a focus on the citrus industry and the emerging bamboo market. Our guest today has a heritage deeply embedded in the Florida citrus industry, tracing back to 1900 when his great grandfather planted their first citrus grove. From a stint on the NYC trading floor during college to leading his father's commodity trading business, he's now at the forefront of the bamboo farming industry as the President of Greenfield Bamboo Investments. Join us as we explore the rich history, opportunities, and challenges of Florida agriculture with Kevin Barley. Tune in for an insightful conversation you won't want to miss!
