España: Trops inicia su campaña de mango Osteen

Desde hace dos semanas TROPS, primera productora y comercializadora de mangos en España, ha iniciado la recolección en los campos de sus productores. Comparado con 2013, que fue un año de poco volumen, se espera un aumento de la cosecha en un 80% hasta un volumen total de casi 10.000 toneladas.




TROPS, conocida por su enfoque en calidad del producto y servicio, garantiza a sus clientes una maduración óptima de sus frutos.


 Según su director, Enrique Colilles, “este trabajo empieza en el campo con la recolección de los mangos según su punto de madurez, supervisado y controlado por los agrónomos de la cooperativa. Posteriormente, se hace una selección estricta de la fruta en el almacén, con el fin de que solo la mejor fruta sea expedida a los mercados internacionales”. 



El buen clima de este verano ha propiciado un adelanto de la campaña. 


Diferente a lo inicialmente estimado, se prevé en mango Osteen, la variedad estrella, para las primeras semanas de recolección una concentración en calibr…

The Origins and Implications of the Scottish Referendum

Geopolitical Weekly

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 - 03:01 Stratfor











By George Friedman

The idea of Scottish independence has moved from the implausible to the very possible. Whether or not it actually happens, the idea that the union of England and Scotland, which has existed for more than 300 years, could be dissolved has enormous implications in its own right, and significant implications for Europe and even for global stability.





The United Kingdom was the center of gravity of the international system from the end of the Napoleonic Wars until World War II. It crafted an imperial structure that shaped not only the international system but also the internal political order of countries as diverse as the United States and India. The United Kingdom devised and drove the Industrial Revolution. In many ways, this union was a pivot of world history. To realize it might be dissolved is startling and reveals important things about the direction of the world.
