A reminder to those who are favoring spending money on development of alternative crops. Many of us don't have the time to wait around on something to develop. The quota cuts from the last 3 years are eating many of us alive right now. Something needs to be done immediately for the growers and quota holders. We could fuss all day about the "trickle down" problems that may result from quota cuts but no one's hurting right now like the tobacco farmers. Our communities, here in FL, are not even "tobacco dependant" but we, the growers and quota holders, certainly are. We are the common denominator. Buy us out and we'll develop our own niche in whatever we decide to farm. Please don't waste good money.
