The world’s orange production is set to drop by 4 million tons in 2017/18 to 49.3 million tons due to unfavourable weather conditions in Brazil, the EU, and the US. The fall come despite the marginal increase in the Chinese harvest.  US production is expected to plummet by 23% to 3.6 million tons, less than a third of the 1997/98 level as a result of Hurricane Irma hitting Florida in September and destroying immature fruit. Citrus greening disease in Florida shows no sign of abating, causing unripe fruit to fall from the trees.
