Abstract Citrus utilized production for the 2011-2012 season totaled 11.7 million tons, down slightly from the 2010-2011 season. Florida accounted for 65 percent of the total United States citrus production, while California totaled 32 percent, and Texas and Arizona combined produced the remaining 3 percent. Total utilized citrus production was down from the previous year in all citrus reporting States, except Florida. The value of the 2011-2012 United States citrus crop was up 6 percent from last season, at $3.44 billion (packinghouse-door equivalent). Orange value of production increased 5 percent from last season while grapefruit value is up 1 percent. Tangerine and mandarin value of production is 6 percent higher than last season and lemon value of production is up 16 percent. Tangelo value increased 44 percent from the previous season. Florida's orange production, at 147 million boxes, is up 4 percent from the previous season. Bearing citrus acreage in Florida, at 495,100 acres, is 8,500 acres below the 2010-2011 season. This is the lowest bearing acreage since the 1958-59 season. Floridas frozen concentrated orange juice yield at 1.62848 gallons per box was up 3 percent from last season. Overall comparisons discussed above are based on similar fruit types. The revised production and utilization estimates are based on all data available at the end of the marketing season, including information from marketing orders, shipments, and processor records. Allowances are made for recorded local utilization and home use. Estimates for the 2011-2012 California Valencia oranges and grapefruit are preliminary, since the marketing season is not complete at publication time. Revisions to the utilized production estimates for all citrus for the 2011-2012 season will be published in the April 2013 Crop Production report.
