Fickle Ernesto can’t seem to make up his mind where he plans to go, or even if he’s a hurricane or a tropical storm, so officials planning the Florida Farm to Fuel Summit in Orlando this week are nervously keeping an eye on the weather, just in case.

Several hundred participants from the state and federal government and private industry are planning to attend to discuss incentives and financing opportunities for alternative and renewable fuels in the Sunshine State as well as research, production and distribution programs.

The conference is scheduled for Thursday and Friday. The Florida Department of Agriculture officials say if the event is cancelled due to Hurricane Ernesto they will send out an advisory and post the information on the web site.
