A STORY OF RUNAWAY MANGO EXPORTS...PERU'S EXPORTS TO USA ONLY TELL PART OF THE STORY...

The graph above tells quite a story.


Based on import data compiled from the world trade organization (WTO), the most worrisome part of the graph is the excess mango production that was not shipped to the USA market earlier this year.


Will Peru be able to control itself from shipping more volume to the USA market or will this season pick up where Peru left off at the end of March 2011 ?


Expect a heavy season from Peru this season.


No matter how hard the Peruvian Mango exporters Association (APEM) tries to convince anyone who will listen to the contrary.

CARTA DEL EX DOCTOR DE CABECILLA DE CHAVEZ...

"No soy un traidor"
En carta que publicamos hoy, el doctor Salvador Navarrete aclara ante la opinión pública la finalidad de la entrevista que le hizo Milenio Semanal y advierte que "la Patria no es el presidente, la Patria somos todos y en ese todos están incluidos nuestros hijos, familia, amigos y enemigos"









APRECIADOS TODOS: 
La presente tiene como objetivo aclarar ante la opinión pública el contenido y finalidad de la entrevista que se publicara recientemente en un semanario mexicano y que ha sido objeto de una innumerable cantidad de tergiversaciones y elucubraciones que desvirtúan totalmente el propósito que me movió a otorgarla.

Basado en la información oficial y en mi condición de médico venezolano pensaba sobre el dilema ético que representa velar por la salud de la persona más importante de nuestro país, en momentos en que se ha diagnosticado una afección maligna, y la falta de previsión ante una posible ausencia, temporal o definitiva, en los manejos de la na…

AUSTRALIAN HORTICULTURALISTS WORK TO IDENTIFY DISEASE RESISTANT GENES IN MANGOES...

Mango resistance fighters maintain good taste



Mango breeders are hoping disease-resistance in wild mango species are the key to significantly reducing post-harvest losses, without compromising the fruit’s unique and celebrated flavour.

Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI) scientists are assessing wild mangoes from South East Asia to determine if their resistance levels can be bred into local mango species to prevent post-harvest rot.



Principal Horticulturist Dr Ian Bally and Senior Plant Pathology Experimentalist Kathy Grice are screening mango varieties from across the world for their resistance to anthracnose, a plant fungal disease that causes young fruit drop and post-harvest rot. Senior Biotechnologist Dr Natalie Dillon is also working to identify disease resistance genes.


Post-harvest diseases are the major spoiler of fruit, causing losses of up to 30 per cent in some countries,” Dr Bally said.

“They are presently managed with fungicides and post-harv…

Climate Conversations - A glimpse of climate-smart agriculture in Kenya

By Neil Palmer



There are many ways to describe Maurice Kwadha: farmer, entrepreneur, and climate-smart are some of them.

But some in Kombewa, in western Kenya’s Nyando Basin, used to call him a madman.

Once, when he was collecting discarded milk packets at the local market, he was physically attacked by someone who thought he had lost his mind. But Maurice had a plan. And his small farm, with its burgeoning tree nursery, is the proof.

Standing in the afternoon sun at his farm in Kochiel village, he’s full of smiles. The day before he hosted a special event for World Food Day - which saw over 100 people, including the area’s provincial commissioner - take a tour of his farm.



Even though Maurice has less than half a hectare of land, what he’s done with it is nothing short of i…
