The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative reports that the European Union has eased requirements for the entry of U.S. citrus into the EU market by dropping a requirement for U.S. citrus groves to be surveyed for citrus canker. The change is expected to save U.S. producers an estimated $5.6 million annually and increase U.S. citrus exports to the EU by 25 percent during the first year. USTR states that implementation of the new directive is expected in time for Florida’s grapefruit export season in mid-November.
