Citrus Grove Loans

Oranges and grapefruits are two of the most important commercial citrus varieties grown in the U.S. and also two of the healthiest. They are by far the largest citrus crops, accounting for 86 percent of the acreage planted in 2012. Citrus farmers primarily operate in Florida and California where a combined 97 percent of the U.S. citrus crop is produced. Florida is highest for oranges and grapefruit and California for lemons and tangerines. While the citrus industry faces many challenges, AgAmerica can help with a customized loan package tailored to your financial needs.
