The productive area is estimated at 15,850 ha. In recent years, weather conditions and market prices were the main challenges for citrus farmers and exporters; however, this year, shipping logistics and prices were the main challenges due to soaring prices for sea container transport, lack in available sea containers, and long delays at the seaports. Weather conditions throughout the season were favourable, which led to high yields directed mainly to the local market because of export challenges.
