Citrus Disease To Increase Prices
Citrus growers are dealing with an incurable disease in their crops that the USDA says is going to damage the 9 billion dollar industry.
Because of a disease called citrus greening, the infected fruits will go to waste.
Florida Department of Citrus economists say before this "greening" crisis, orange juice prices had been rising by at least $1.50 a gallon every year.
Prices are expected to increase as the supply continues to drop.
Industry experts can only hope they can come up with a way to control greening before it's a threat that can't be maintained.
