Abstract

Citrus is cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Those areas with the highest level of production include parts of the United States (Florida, California, Texas, and Arizona), Asia (Japan, China, India, and other areas), Central America (Mexico), South America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Trinidad, and Tobago), the Mediterranean (Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Israel, and other areas), South Africa, and Australia. These regions help define a “citrus belt” which is contained between 35°N and 35°S (Ziegler and Wolfe 1975). Some of these areas produce citrus on a large scale and export fruit, while others produce fruit mainly for local consumption.
