California's Valencia orange production is expected to continue to slightly decline this year.

Industry officials say they have not seen any significant damage from winter freezes, but the number of oranges we will see this spring and summer will keep their downward trend.

Last year growers produced about 27-million cartons of Valencia oranges. This year, that number is expected to go down to 25-million.
