Irma Sends Florida's Orange Crop to at 76-Year Low

The first citrus forecast for the season from USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service is calling for the all orange forecast for the 2017-2018 season to 4.34 million tons, down 16 percent from the 2016-2017 final utilization.

Things are even worse in Florida as NASS expects 54 million boxes of oranges to be produced, down 21 percent from last year's final production of nearly 69 million boxes. A survey of analysts conducted by Bloomberg indicated a crop of 58.2 million boxes.

"There's no way they have an accurate count of the estimate they'll release tomorrow based on the continued damage that's falling out from Hurricane Irma", he said, "and the fact that they pulled their limb counters out of the groves at a time when they didn't have an accurate picture of the long-term damage to the trees and to the crop".
