Lemon producers in Yuma area having good season

Posted: Updated:
YUMA, AZ (AP) -

Lemon producers in the Yuma area are now having a good season after many years of struggling to compete in a global market.

The Yuma Daily Sun reports that producers in the Yuma area were benefiting from higher lemon prices and favorable growing conditions.

The improving prospects for Yuma's lemon producers come as weather conditions in two of the world's major citrus producing countries led to a global squeeze on the supply of lemons.

Argentina is the fourth largest lemon producer in the world. Trees in that country's biggest lemon producing region were exposed to extended periods of icy temperatures for several days in late July.

Chile, the world's fifth largest lemon producer, also suffered damage from the cold temperatures.
