• Se trabaja con los productores para revertir esta situación, asegura Rodríguez

De las casi 50 mil hectáreas que se han perdido por la deforestación desde 1999, 80 por ciento corresponden a cambios de uso de suelo para crear huertos de aguacate, alertó la directora general de la Comisión Forestal del Estado (Cofom), Martha Josefina Rodríguez Casillas.









La funcionaria estatal explicó que para revertir esta situación continúan con los trabajos conjuntos con los productores de aguacate y organizaciones del sector desde el seno del Consejo Estatal Forestal, donde existe un comité técnico de cambio de uso de suelo.








Sin especificar cuándo, añadió que trabaja en llevar a cabo un foro de manera conjunta que permita establecer una línea de acción para atender la problemática.







Rodríguez Casillas enfatizó que todos los cambios de uso de suelo que se han dado en los últimos años son ilegales, dado que “no ha habido una autorización formal para cambios de uso de suelo para cultivos agrícolas del aguacate ni de ningún tipo, sin embargo, se están tomando acuerdos para ver qué se va a hacer con los que incurran en esta falta y también cómo se va a compensar a los que ya están establecidos”.








Señaló que el total de ese 80 por ciento que se ha perdido es exclusivamente para establecimiento de este cultivo y no de algún otro, dada la demanda de este producto agrícola.









Finalmente, aclaró que los datos con los que se cuenta sobre la pérdida de suelo corresponden al periodo de 1999 al 2010, que fue cuando se hizo la última medición, pero que de las casi 50 mil hectáreas antes mencionadas se lograron reforestar aproximadamente 30 mil.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 


It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
