Costa Rica: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Costa Rica’s 2015/2016 citrus crop rebounded to 8.2 million boxes (40.824 kg.) after what is now considered by the local industry as one of the worst crops on record (2014/2015). The 2016/2017 crop is forecast to reach a similar level (around 8.2 million boxes) as improved weather patterns for orange cultivation in the main production areas are expected to result in higher productivity. The outlook is a bit brighter for 2017/2018 as production could reach 8.5 million boxes but only with continued favorable weather patterns in the future. The United States continues to be Costa Rica’s main destination for orange juice exports.
