Turkish growers expect production volumes for citrus to be more this year. Citrus season will start in Turkey in the middle of September. During 2018/2019 season Turkish citrus sector reported good yields despite the Mediterranean fruit fly problem and bad weather conditions. According to the Turkish Statistical Institute orange production estimate is slightly lower than previous season at 1.9 million metric tons and tangerine production is estimated at 1.65 million metric tons, up from 1.55 million metric tons last year. Orange exports are estimated at 350,000 metric tons, tangerines at 710,000 metric tons, and lemon exports estimate is 571,000 metric tons for 2018/2019 season.
