Spain: Drop in the production of limes

Citrus growers in the province of Málaga predict there will be a decline in volume in the next lime harvest, which will be offset by the expected higher fruit calibre, and a 15% increase in the production of oranges, in contrast to the previous campaign year.

According to a statement from the Young Farmers Association of Malaga, they are expecting the harvest of limes, which will start in early October, to have a 7.5% drop.

Estimates are that there will be a 15% decrease compared to last year in the volume of the Verna variety, which will be harvested in months.

According to the statement, citrus growers aren't concerned with this data and the head of Fruits and Vegetables of Asaja Malaga, Benjamin Faulí, noted that what was important for them was the fruit's quality, that its calibre was adequate, and that its price was reasonable."

Estimates place the campaign between 65,000 and 70,000 tons. Faulí noted that said estimates contrasted with those made at the national level, as the first estimate of lime crop production is set at 910,000 tonnes, representing an 11% increase over the previous year.

On the other hand, estimates for the orange campaign say it will be fifteen percent higher than last year, and will amount to nearly 70,000 tons.
