Indian River Citrus Peackinghouses and the Southward Movement of Production

Existing packinghouses are located near older groves. As more citrus is grown farther south in Florida, transportation cost increases will occur unless new packinghouses open near the new production areas. This paper is concerned with the impact of the southern movement of citrus production in the Indian River marketing district on the size, number, and location of citrus packinghouses. The southern movement of citrus production does suggest the need for construction of a new packinghouse in Jupiter, Florida. Existing packinghouses could be reconfigured into larger packinghouses. In general, however, the Indian River packinghouse capacity is located where the production is located.
