World orange crop slumps

The world’s total orange production for the 2019/20 season is projected to drop 11% to 47.5 million tons due to unfavourable growing conditions in Brazil, Egypt, the European Union, and Morocco, according to USDA data.  As a result, consumption, fruit for processing, and fresh exports are also expected to plummet.

Global orange production is forecast to rise 2.4 million tons on the previous year to 49.6 million for 2016/17 as a larger Brazilian crop more than offsets smaller ones in China and the US.

However that won’t translate to much of an increase in total exports, as most of the extra supplies will be used for processing, according to a new USDA report on world citrus markets.
