Israel: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Israel’s planted area with citrus in marketing year (MY) 2020/21 is forecast to be 18,260 hectares (ha) up 3.7 percent from the area planted in MY 2019/20 of 17,600 ha. The productive area is estimated at 16,100 ha. In past years, the main challenges citrus farmers and exporters faced were weather conditions and market prices. This year for the first time, farmers had to manage COVID-19 restrictions, which affected their field work, packing house operations, and shipping logistics. Farmers were also not able to harvest their produce on-time and faced limited export and domestic market opportunities.
