Orange Production By Country (Top 118 Countries)

Orange Production

Orange production is a big part of agriculture in many countries and a big part of the world economy. In addition, oranges have a lot of Vitamin C and can be eaten fresh, in juice, or as part of cooked foods like marmalade and jam.

Oranges are a very important part of the world’s citrus fruit production, making up more than half of all citrus fruits. In the last 30 years, the number of oranges grown and eaten has grown by 3.5% per year. Over the same period, the production of processed orange goods and their exports have increased by 4.4%. This is because transportation has improved, and the cost of packaging has decreased. 

Governments and other groups are trying to help producers deal with the impact of climate change and other problems by giving them money and additional support. Farmers can get low-interest loans and protection plans through these programs.

In addition to these steps, consumers can help support sustainable orange production by picking products certified as sustainable or organic. This can help spur farmers to use environmentally friendly technologies and farming methods that are good for the land.
