The U.S. Department of Agriculture said this week its estimate of the 2012-2013 Florida orange crop decreased less than one percent to 141 million boxes. The decrease occurred in the Valencia variety which declined
1 million boxes from the USDA’s
January estimate to 75 million boxes. Early-mid varieties held steady at
66 million boxes.
The USDA makes its initial estimate in October of each year and revises it monthly as the crop takes shape until the end of the season in July.
