Today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a story on strawberries,
featuring a Roy Parke from Plant City, FL.  The article claims that Florida
is the largest producer of strawberries in the US at this time of year
(although it states that overall, CA produces the most).  The article is in
the food section and presents strawberries as a wonderful, delicious,
wholesome food.

A while ago there was much discussion on this list about California
strawberries, the heavy use of methyl bromide and its exposure to farm
workers, residents of Watsonville, and other horror stories.  

Does anyone know if commercial strawberry production in FL is essentially
different than in CA?
