(Sept. 19) Florida’s orange growers will receive an estimated $1.37 per pound solids for their product this season, according to the Lakeland Ledger.

Pound solids is a measure of how much juice is squeezed from fruit. The break-even price is $1.25.

Bob Norberg, deputy executive director of research and operations at the Florida Department of Citrus in Lakeland, made the forecast to members of the Florida Citrus Commission.

Processors buy 95% of the state’s orange crop, the newspaper said.
