How Much of the Orange Juice We Drink Comes From Florida?

Almost all the orange juice we drink in the United States is processed in Florida.

The state of Florida grows 80 percent of all oranges and grapefruit in the United States.

The second largest industry in Florida is agriculture, and citrus fruit, especially oranges, are a major part of the economy.

Florida’s economy has historically been based on cattle farming and agriculture, which include sugarcane, citrus, celery, tomatoes, and strawberries.

Water pollution is a major environmental issue in Florida today, and is one of the impacts of agriculture in the region.
