Israel: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IS2022-0013

Israel’s planted citrus area in marketing year (MY) 2022/23 is forecast to be 16,200 hectares (ha) with no change from the area planted in MY 2021/22. The productive area is estimated at 15,850 ha and official figures have yet to be published by the Citrus Board this year regarding the aera planted. In recent years, weather conditions and market prices were the main challenges for citrus farmers and exporters; however, this year, shipping logistics and prices were the main challenges due to soaring prices for sea container transport, lack in available sea containers, and long delays at the seaports. Weather conditions throughout the season were favorable, which led to high yields directed mainly to the local market because of export challenges.
