Ecuador: Temporada de mango con un 20% de merma y mayores calibres

El clima no ha acompañado de la mejor forma a los productores de mango ecuatorianos, teniendo en su producción un efecto similar al que causó en Perú.




“A causa de El Niño no hemos tenido suficientes días de frío, lo que provocó aborto de frutos y retraso en el proceso de floración”,
afirma el Ingeniero Anthony Burgos, Jefe de Planta de Agriproducts, una de las empacadoras mas grandes del país, por la cual pasa el 35% del mango fresco que Ecuador exporta.





La temporada comenzó con bajos volúmenes de fruta y según datos de la empresa, la cual comenzó a recibir mango en su empacadora el 16 de septiembre, este año durante la semana 38 se recibieron unas 5.000 gavetas, mientras que en el mismo periodo de 2014 se recibieron unas 14.000.





“Al inicio tuvimos una reducción bastante drástica, sólo recibimos el 30% de los mangos que el año pasado, pero ya se está empezando a normalizar”,
afirma.




“Ésta es una temporada ambigua, la producción bajará un 20%, pero estamos recibiendo más frutos de mayor ca…

HOW WORRIED SHOULD YOU BE ABOUT EBOLA SCARE ...

As this Reuters map shows, the U.S. is one of a number of countries with direct flights from the infected area, which in theory provides ample opportunity for the virus to spread far beyond West Africa.




Fortunately, unlike airborne diseases, Ebola can only be spread through contact with bodily fluids—although this means all fluids, including seemingly innocuous liquids like sweat and tears. 




The method of transmission should limit the virus’s ability to spread quickly without detection.



Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told NBC that a seven-person CDC team is working with the infected man’s family to get a full picture of those who might have been exposed in the time between when the man arrived in Dallas on Sept. 20 and when he was isolated eight days later.




Symptoms of Ebola can take between two and 21 days to emerge, so the next couple of weeks will be key. 




As things stand, if the CDC’s identification and containment efforts in Dallas…

Over 17,000 trays of mangoes were trucked out of the Darwin region last week and markets are also starting to get fruit from Katherine (NT) and Kununurra (WA).





Prices are holding up, with first grade mangoes averaging $45 a tray in both the Sydney and Melbourne markets.




Boyd Arthur, from the Australian Mango Industry Association, says the Katherine season is shaping up well.




"Katherine is definitely going to have a reasonable season, not a bumper crop, but a reasonable season," Mr. Arthur said.


"If quality stays up, the average [mango price] will definitely hold for a while.
