The benefits of keeping California Citrus Strong.

California citrus crops have a well-earned reputation for providing a variety of exceptional fruit to every state in the country, as well as strong exports. They are truly a California renewable resource, creating jobs and driving our economy.

The citrus industry requires labor nearly ten months a year, directly employing 10,000 people and providing an additional 12,000 jobs in related industries like packing houses, equipment dealers and crop chemical suppliers. The reliability of citrus helps workers stay in one place, in a variety of jobs, generating over $500 million in taxes and fees that go right back into California communities.

Growers understand that they have a responsibility to their employees, communities and the overall citrus industry. By making their produce the best it can be, they create an economy that is financially and environmentally sustainable.
