US: Larger orange production expected in 2014-2015

The latest USDA orange forecast predicts the 2014-2015 crop will be slightly bigger than the 2013-2014 one.

Last season's orange production in the United States reached 156.4 million boxes, and, if the the latest USDA forecast pans out, the upcoming season's production will be 2.5 percent larger than that. Production for the 2014-2015 orange season is expected to reach 160.4 million boxes, with gains in both Valencia and non-Valencia orange production. Florida, the state with the largest production of oranges in the country, is expected to have 108.0 million boxes of oranges for the upcoming season.

Grapefruit production is forecast to dip to 24.8 million boxes for the upcoming season – down from the previous season's production of 25.4 million boxes. Florida's production of grapefruit is expected to decrease only slightly, from 15.7 million boxes last season to 15.0 million boxes for 2014-2015.

Lemon production is expected to decrease by 800,000 boxes for the upcoming season, with production in California, the state that grows the most lemons, remaining unchanged at 19.0 million boxes.
