Argentina: Citrus Annual

For MY 2017/2018, all three types of fresh citrus production are forecast to increase due to favorable weather conditions. Lemon exports are expected to increase slightly because of greater production, while orange and tangerine exports will remain unchanged from official estimates, but below historical averages due to the lack of competitiveness in the export sector. Domestic consumption is projected to rise significantly for oranges and tangerines due to larger production and the difficulties faced by Argentine exporters in the export market. The U.S. market to Argentine lemons was reopened in August 2017, and the first shipments are estimated to arrive in the U.S. in the 2017/2018 marketing season, beginning in April 2018.
