Un motociclista francés murió el viernes al estrellarse con un vehículo policial durante la séptima etapa del Rally Dakar entre la localidad chilena de Calama y la ciudad argentina de Salta, informaron los organizadores de la carrera.





Thomas Bourgin, de 25 años, falleció tras chocar a eso de las 8:23 a.m. en el kilómetro 237 con un vehículo de la policía chilena que transitaba en dirección opuesta de la carrera. Las autoridades investigan los detalles del accidente, señalaron los organizadores en un comunicado.

EUROPEAN MARKET FOR MANGOES IS CURRENTLY SATURATED ...

Fruitmarket: "Stock must be cleared in the coming weeks"




Over supply on mango market








There is an over supply on the mango market, but this should change soon, according to Eryvan Pires of Fruitmarket. 


He indicates that 2012 was problematic in general and that the new year also started with difficulties. 


"Peru, Brazil and Ecuador all arrived at once and there was a lot of delay in transport. Christmas and New Year weren't as good as in previous years and up until now the sales and market demand have been low."














Stocks must be cleared





He indicates that some retailers will promote the products and this will make the stock shrink a little.



 "But the market is really under pressure and there is still a lot of volume at the moment. Compared to November the prices have gone down 50%. There is less demand than in previous years. In the coming weeks the stocks will have to be cleared and the market will have to go back to the reality. Brazil and Ecuador are stopping ship…

Political Uncertainty in Venezuela Feeds Crime and Violence ...

President Hugo Chavez is suffering from cancer












The rumors of President Hugo Chavez's imminent death, and the jostling for position among his possible successors, are creating conditions in which crime and violence are flourishing and likely to do so through 2013.




As the Venezuelan president lies, apparently in terminal condition, in a Cuban hospital bed, the murder rate in Venezuela is likely to top more than 70 per 100,000. This makes the Andean nation the most dangerous in South America, and one of the most dangerous in the world, superseded only by Honduras.





The violence is showing no sign of letting up in 2013. 



Already a policeman has been gunned down so that his weapon could be stolen, a trend seen throughout 2012. 



In the first six days of the year more than 75 murders were registered in Caracas alone. 



Venezuelan prisons are the most dangerous in the world. They are forming a new generation of criminals for an increasingly sop…

MEXICAN MANGO MAFIA: 'Chapo' Guzman Grabs More Market Share in Colombia ...

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman









Mexico's crime lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is tightening his grip on the production of cocaine and other illicit drugs throughout the Andean region, according to Mexico's leading news magazine.






Citing Colombian academics and analysts, Proceso says the recent disintegration and weakening of Colombia's major trafficking organizations has given Chapo, who is a leader in Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel, an opening to increase his dominance in the region.





"All the Colombian narco-traffickers want to do deals with him. They seek him, propose business," Pablo Ignacio Reyes, a crime expert at Colombia's National University told the magazine. "At this time El Chapo is trafficker number one. And his partners here say that in Mexico he is the god of gods, and the Sinaloa Cartel is the strongest there is."

PERU PROJECTS 7.5 MILLION (4kg) CARTONS OF 10 COUNT KENT MANGOES ...

Winter Park, Florida























With a minimum of 100 million metric tonnes projected by the Peruvian Mango Exporters Association (APEM), lets see how those 25 million (4kg) cartons are breaking down by size.







Keep in mind that these numbers are two times greater and nearly three times greater than what Ecuador shipped this season (10 million (4kg) cartons).








The Peruvian crop is sizing small by comparison to last season.







Smaller simply does not have the shelf life that larger fruit does and this will greatly affect distances that fruit can travel.







By that, I mean that trees are loaded with smaller size fruit.







Kent variety mangoes tend to size in the 6,7,8,9 count range with some 10s and 12s.










This year we are looking at 30% of the projected crop in the 10 count range. That translates to roughly 7.5 million cartons available for export this season.










Currently in the USA marketpl…

Perú: Camposol reduciría área de espárragos en 2 años ...

IMO: Esta noticia es relevante por varias razones:




Primero: Camposol es uno de los mas grandes productores y commercializadores de mango en Peru.


Segundo: La industria de mango busca alternativas y con esta noticia, se elimina uno de ellos en la cual Peru ha sido muy competitivo.


Tercero: Otra vez se demuestra la nobleza del cultivo de mango. En vez de castigarlo, hay que buscar como mejorar la industria de mango en Peru.

Perú dejaría de ser el primer exportador mundial. Explican que el ciclo de vida de los sembríos está llegando a su fin. Reacomodaría la industria.



Camposol, líder mundial en exportaciones de espárragos, reduciría “considerablemente” la producción de la hortaliza en tres años, lo que retiraría al Perú del podio de los comercialización externa de la hortaliza.




“El espárrago tiene un ciclo de vida de 10 años y nuestras plantas tienen en promedio 8 años. Si no se renuevan las hectáreas que existen, en los siguientes tres años comenzarían dejar de existir y e…
