Florida had farm cash receipts of $7.6 billion in 2017, ranking 18th among states, including three-fourths from crops. Citrus was worth $1.2 billion, including almost 90 percent from oranges. Vegetables and melons were worth $1.2 billion, including $262 million from fresh tomatoes and $206 million from bell peppers.
The on-tree value of citrus has fallen by half over the past decade, from over $1 billion in 2008-09 to $550 million in 2017-18. Florida has 400,000 acres of oranges, and grower prices have been falling, to a projected $1.60 a pound of solids (a measure of the juice squeezed from the fruit) for oranges picked in 2019-20, drown from $2.60 in 2017-18, due to the declining consumption of orange juice.
