Kilcher, Lukas (2005) Organic Citrus: Challenges in Production and Trade. In: Cuaderno de Resumenes I Conferencia Internacional de Citricultura Ecologica BIOCIITRICS, pp. 22-27.
Organic citrus still is a niche and makes about 1-2% of the global citrus production. However, it is increasing year-by-year in parallel with the increasing demand for organic products. Organic citrus offers creative and circumspect producers and exporters excellent opportunities for success. Key success factors are specific know-how, access to production inputs and to markets. The main production areas of organic citrus – oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, limes and lemons – are Latin America, North America, Europe and Near East. Many tropical countries in the Americas are extending organic citrus production. What are the challenges for organic citrus production and trade?
