CITRUS

    Cash receipts from citrus crops amounted to $1.61 billion dollars, an increase of 7.8 percent from 1997. Sales of citrus commodities accounted for 24 percent of all sales in Florida. (Receipts for citrus are on a "delivered in" basis without discounting picking and hauling costs.)

    Sales of grapefruit were down from $186 million in 1997 to $146 million in 1998. Sales from oranges ($1.35 billion), tangerines ($76.5 million), and tangelos ($20.3 million) all increased from the previous year.

VEGETABLES AND MELONS

    Cash receipts from vegetable and melon crops amounted to $1.54 billion in 1998, up 5.3 percent from 1997, and accounting for almost 23 percent of the total cash receipts. Potatoes, snap beans, and squash accounted for most of the increase from last year. Cucumber receipts were down from 1997, as were cabbage, sweet corn, and green peppers. Receipts for tomatoes, at $506.6 million, accounted for 33 percent of all vegetable and melon receipts and 7.6 percent of all cash receipts.

FIELD CROPS

    Receipts for field crops amounted to $645 million, up slightly from $636 million last year. Sugarcane, at $472 million, increased 8.8 percent from 1997 and accounts for 73 percent of field crop receipts and 7 percent of all cash receipts. Hay receipts were virtually the same as in 1997. All other field crops produced lower receipts in 1998 than in 1997.

1/ Final sector output is the gross value of the commodities and services produced within a year. Net value-added is the sector's contribution to the National economy and is the sum of the income from production earned by all factors-of-production. Net farm income is the farm operators' share of income from the sector's production activities. The concept presented is consistent with that employed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
2/ A positive value of inventory change represents current-year production not sold by December 1. A negative value is an offset to production from prior years included in current-year sales.
