Morocco: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   MO2022-0030

Morocco’s MY 2022/2023 citrus production is expected to fall 35 percent from the previous season due to water scarcity and unfavorable weather. Tangerine and mandarin production are expected to decrease by 34 percent from the previous year to 900,000 MT, while orange production should fall by 35 percent to 750,000 MT. Lemon and lime production will reach 35,000 MT, a 22 percent decline from MY 2021/2022. Declining citrus production will diminish Moroccan citrus exports. Increasing pressure on water resources has resulted in an estimated loss of six percent of planted citrus area, including the removal of ten percent of tangerine/mandarin orchards.
