Florida Orange-Crop Forecast Unchanged at 154 Million Boxes

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Florida orange growers will harvest 154 million boxes of the fruit in the season that started in October, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today, carrying forward a projection made last month.

The forecast was made in a report posted online by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. A crop of that size would be 5 percent bigger than the previous season’s harvest.

“We typically don’t make any changes in the November report from October,” said Candice Erick, NASS’s agricultural statistics administrator.

A box of oranges weighs 90 pounds, or 41 kilograms. Florida is the world’s second-biggest producer of the fruit, after Brazil.
