|Inventory Disclosure [Abstract]|
Inventories consist of the following at September 30, 2019 and 2018:
The Company records its inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value. For the fiscal years ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded adjustments to reduce inventory to net realizable value of approximately $808,000 and $1,115,000 respectively. These adjustments to inventory are included in operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
In September 2017, the State of Florida’s citrus business, including the Company’s unharvested citrus crop, was significantly impacted by Hurricane Irma. The impact of Hurricane Irma resulted in the premature drop of unharvested fruit and damage to citrus trees, which will impact fruit production until such time as the citrus trees recover, potentially through the 2018/2019 harvest season. The Company undertook a process to estimate the amount of inventory casualty loss as of the date of Hurricane Irma. Such process included a number of factors including: (1) touring all of the citrus groves by operational personnel to assess the estimated fruit drop by grove and the impact of damage to the citrus trees; (2) consideration of independent estimates of the reduced citrus production for the State of Florida; and (3) an estimate of fruit the Company expects to produce for the 2017/2018 harvest season after Hurricane Irma. As a result, the Company recorded a casualty loss to reduce the carrying value of unharvested fruit crop on trees inventory by approximately $13,489,000.
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, the Company received insurance proceeds relating to Hurricane Irma of approximately $486,000 in additional property and casualty claims reimbursement. There are no further property and casualty or crop insurance claims pending relating to Hurricane Irma. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, the Company received insurance proceeds relating to Hurricane Irma of approximately $477,000 for property and casualty damage claims and approximately $8,952,000 for crop claims. These insurance proceeds are included as a reduction to operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
The Company is eligible for Hurricane Irma federal relief programs for block grants that are being administered through the State of Florida. During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, the Company received approximately $15,597,000 under the Florida Citrus Recovery Block Grant (“CRBG”) program. This represents the Part 1 and a portion of the Part 2 reimbursement under the three-part program. The timing and amount to be received under the remaining portion of the Part 2 and the Part 3 of the program has not been finalized. These federal relief proceeds are included as a reduction to operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
On November 7, 2019 and November 18, 2019, the Company received additional proceeds of approximately $163,800 and approximately $3,973,000, respectively, under the Florida CRBG program. This represents another portion of the Part 2 reimbursement under the three-part program.
