NEWS : The new 2012-2013 citrus fruit production

Updated : 14/11/2012

The market forecasts of Simone Gatto, our partner and supplier of citrus fruit in Italy

The total citrus fruit production this year will be of good quality, with neither particular problem foreseen, nor diseases. The small size of oranges and lemons may be noticed, due to recent heavy rains in many regions.
Picking of oranges and grapefruits has began at normal time and lemons 2 weeks later.

The world production decreasing by 6 %, the lack of stock in Europe for Argentine citrus fruit and lower quantities that this country will export this year leave a start of season with good market expectations, with no oversupply.
Particularly, the reduction by 12 % of the lemon production should have an impact on volumes.

In Italy, with 595 000 tons (160 650 tons for the industry), the lemon crop is announced to be similar to last year, the part which is treated by industry still going down, compared to the production for fresh fruits.

The red oranges crop is expected to be reduced by 40 % (420 000 tons, 84 000 for the industry) and the blond oranges one by 10 to 15 % (1 530 000 tons, 306 000 t. for the industry).
On the contrary, the bitter oranges crop should increase of 20 % (1 530 000 tons), and the mandarins crop of 10 to 15 % (110 000 tons, 33 000 t. for the industry).

In Spain, the lemon crop will be slightly decreasing (870 000 tons, 215 000 tons for the industry) and the oranges crop will be similar to last year (3 105 000 tons, 650 000 t. for the industry).
