Israeli Citrus Sales Going Up, Industry Sources Say

Israeli citrus exports are expected to establish an all-time high this season as a result of the weather conditions that destroyed a large part of the Spanish citrus crop and opened new outlets for Israeli growers.

Estimates earlier in the season that Israel citrus exports would run about $20,000,000 were being revised upward today. Industry sources said today that Israel would export 7,000,000 cases, netting about $30,000,000.
