South Africa suffers citrus infection setback

Citrus growers fear fungal infection found in oranges sent to Europe may lead to ban on imports from South Africa.

    South Africa's citrus industry is under scrutiny after a fungal infection called Citrus Black Spot was found in a shipment of oranges to Europe.

    The EU is worried that the infection could be introduced to Europe. But growers say a proposed EU ban on imports from South Africa is really about protectionism.
