Dan Citrus, Crop Forecasts, Florida, General

Mark Hudson, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, delivered the November citrus crop forecast. He reported a drop in Florida for all oranges of 6 million boxes. Non-Valencia and Valencia oranges are forecast at 37 million boxes each, down from the October forecast of 40 million boxes each. Hudson reported that this decrease was due to the fruit size being smaller and a higher drop rate.
