Argentina: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AR2022-0027

For marketing year (MY) 2022/23, Post forecasts fresh lemon production to decrease to 1.77 million metric tons (MMT) due to unfavorable weather conditions. Fresh orange production is projected to decrease to 800,000 metric tons (MT), and fresh tangerine production is expected to decrease to 380,000 MT due to heavy hailstorms in July 2022 in northeastern Argentina, which caused fruit loss and may have damaged trees. Lemon exports are expected to decline to 235,000 MT due to smaller production. Orange exports are expected to decrease to 60,000 MT due to smaller production. Tangerine exports are forecast to increase to 57,000 MT due to decreased domestic consumption. The past few years have been challenging for the Argentine citrus industry as domestic economic woes have been exacerbated by external shocks such as effects of COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
