Last month, Hurricane Ian reportedly caused up to $1.8 billion in agricultural damage in Florida.

According to a preliminary estimate released Monday by the Florida Department of Agriculture, the devastating Category 4 storm caused between $1.1 billion and $1.8 billion (U.S.) in crop and infrastructure losses when it ripped through the peninsula after landing in southwest Florida.

Crop losses ranged between $686 million and $1.2 billion.

Citrus suffered the greatest losses, with damages ranging from $416 million to $675 million.

The hurricane hit near the beginning of the citrus growing season.

Florida produces roughly 60% of all citrus consumed in the United States.
