Japan: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Although Japanese production and consumption of citrus has been in decline for decades, market year (MY) 2016/17 marked a small increase from the previous MY. Japanese mandarin area planted continued a modest decline to 52,200 hectares (ha) in MY 2017/18. Cloudy weather and low temperatures in summer, coupled with typhoons and rain in October, further contributed to a lower production forecast in MY 2017/18 to 990,000 metric tons (MT). Grapefruit consumption is also forecast lower 13 percent to 95,000 MT on reduced production in Florida, though offset partially by other suppliers.
