University of Florida flower bud advisory and Thanksgiving dinner price hike

From the Ag Information Network, I’m Bob Larson with your agribusiness update.

**The University of Florida will resume providing growers with regular flower bud advisories as the critical period for citrus grove management begins this winter.

According to www.morningagclips.com, the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences restarted advisories on November 21 and will continue to provide them every two weeks until early spring.

Growers use this information to determine when to spray for Asian citrus psyllid control as well as when to stop spraying pesticides for pollination.

**Thanksgiving is an important holiday for spending time with family and friends, and the American Farm Bureau’s 37th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner Survey provides insight into how much this year’s classic feast will cost for 10 people.

This year’s price is $64.05, still down from $6.50 per person, but up more than ten dollars from last year’s $53.31.

The centerpiece is the turkey, which costs $28.96 for a 16-pound bird, 21% more than last year.

**Creighton University’s Rural Main Street Economic Confidence Index fell below neutral growth for the sixth consecutive month to its lowest level since 2020.

On a scale of 1 to 100, 50 represents neutral growth.

Nearly 31% of bank CEOs surveyed recommend the Fed stop raising interest rates.

Despite the weaker rural outlook, only 14% say their bank has increased financial commitments on agricultural loans.
