USDA Publishes Citrus Semi-Annual Report for Brazil

On July 20, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) published its latest Citrus Semi-Annual Report for Brazil. Notable highlights for oranges in the forecast include:

  • FAS forecasts that orange acreage in market year (MY) 2022/23 will increase by 8,649 acres over the previous year to 1,526,123 acres. 
  • FAS estimates that orange production in MY 2022/23 decreased by 1.1% from the previous year to 16.75 million metric tons (MMT) as this was an off-year in a biennial bearing cycle.
  • Fresh orange exports for MY 2022/23 are projected at nearly zero, similar to the previous season. Brazil’s market access to other countries is limited. The few exports that do occur are shipped to European countries between June and December.
  • Orange imports come primarily from Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Argentina, and Chile, at about 26,000 MT for 2023.
