Argentina will lose $40 mn due to the suspension of the import of oranges in Europe

The decision of the European Union (EU) to temporarily ban the entry of Argentine citrus fruits, due to the appearance of Mancha Negra (Phyllosticta Citricarpa) mainly in the exports of lemons produced in the Northwest of Argentina, will generate enormous damage to the sector. Now the measure will impact on shipments of oranges and tangerines, grown in Entre Rios and Corrientes, with a loss of about 40 million dollars.
