Estimates for Spain’s citrus crop production for the 2017-18 campaign point to a general decline in output for all crops. The reduction in output is expected to be especially marked in tangerine group, where the fall is estimated at 16.1%, mainly due to the decline in satsumas (-29.7%) and clementine (-18.7%). Likewise, smaller reductions are forecast for orange (-10.6%), lemon (-8.8%) and grapefruit (-5.8%).
