Total inventories










The Company records its inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded adjustments of approximately $808,000 to reduce inventory to net realizable value. This adjustment to inventory is 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.

The Company was eligible for Hurricane Irma federal relief programs for block grants that were being administered through the State of Florida. During the fiscal years ended September 30, 2021, 2020, and 2019, the Company received approximately $4,299,000, $4,629,000, and $15,597,000, respectively, under the Florida Citrus Recovery Block Grant (“CRBG”) program. These federal relief proceeds are included as a reduction to operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The remaining portion of the funds that are due to Alico under the Florida CRBG program relates to certain crop insurance expenses incurred by the Company and is estimated to be approximately $2,000,000. In October 2021, the Company received its first portion of this crop insurance expense reimbursement in an amount equal to approximately $1,000,000 and is expected to receive the remaining portion in fiscal 2023.
