The harvest 2014/15 predictions by autumn were anything but rosy. After completion of the campaign the fears have come true. Shortly summarized:
- Less fruits on the trees as in previous Years - Delayed harvest (start middle / end of January) - Heavy rains in February / March - End of the harvest already in mid-April
The „Consorzio Italiano Industrie di Trasformazione Agrume“ (CITRAG ; associated members form 90% of the processing industry) claims a decrease of 40%. The „Comité de Liaison de l’Agrumiculture Méditerranéenne“ ( CLAM ) talks even of a 50% lower production than last Year. The lower amount and the short harvest period resulted also in very low Anthocyanin values.
