Speaker Spotlight: Singerman on Current Economics of Citrus Production

Ariel Singerman

In this week’s Speaker Spotlight, Ariel Singerman, assistant professor at the Citrus Research and Education Center, gives a brief preview of his Citrus Expo seminar, “Current economics of citrus production.”

The first part of his presentation will focus on citrus production costs in 2015–16 and changes in cost of production with respect to the previous season. In the second part, he will discuss the results of a study he conducted on Citrus Health Management Areas (CHMAs), regarding the behavior of growers and their views on joining or not joining.

Singerman says that growers will learn what their peers are doing in terms of inputs, costs and behaviors toward CHMAs. He adds that it’s important to understand nearby growers’ views on CHMAs.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2016.
