India’s mango exports to remain below 25,000 tonnes this year: Assocham























Ashish Tripathi, TNN | Jun 17, 2015, 04.37PM IST




















"Mango exports have fallen significantly in recent years in quantity terms i.e. from 55,585 tonnes in 2012-13 to 41,280 tonnes in 2013-14 thereby registering a fall of about 26 per cent year-on-year (Y-o-Y),” according to the analysis based on a study titled ‘Mango: Anxiety on production & export front,’ conducted by Assocham.





LUCKNOW: Export of mangoes from India might fall by up to 40per cent in terms of quantity and might remain less than even 25,000 tonnes as unseasonal rains coupled with hailstorms between February-end and early-April lashed major mango producing areas across India thereby damaging the crop and causing a dearth of 'export-quality' fruit, according to an ASSOCHAM analysis. 





Mango exports have fallen significantly in recent years in quantity terms i.e. from 55,585 tonnes in 2012-13 to 41,280 tonnes in 2013-14 thereby registering a fall of about 26 per cent year-on-year (Y-o-Y)," according to the analysis based on a study titled 'Mango: Anxiety on production & export front,' conducted by the Agri-business council of The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM). 





Even previously, exports of mangoes had fallen by over 12 percent Y-o-Y i.e. from over 63,440 tonnes in 2011-12 to 55,585 tonnes in 2012-13. Though in terms of value, mango exports rose by about 26 percent Y-o-Y i.e. from over Rs 209 crore in 2011-12 to Rs 265 crore in 2012-13. 


But the growth in realisation had fallen drastically from 26 percent in 2012-13 to eight per cent in 2013 14. 





However, export of mango pulp from India has risen both in terms of quantity and value by 18 per cent and 27 per cent respectively in 2013-14, further noted the ASSOCHAM analysis.




 UAE alone accounted for over 60 per cent of India's total mango exports followed by UK (16 per cent), Saudi Arabia (four per cent), Kuwait (three per cent) and Qatar (two per cent) in 2013-14. While Kuwait registered a whopping 456 per cent jump Y-o-Y followed by Bahrain (28 per cent), Saudi Arabia (3.4 per cent) and UK (2.3 per cent), US did not register any growth in imports of mango (quantity-wise) from India, rest all countries registered negative growth in 2013-14. 




"Apart from poor mango production due to damage caused by unseasonal rains in top mango producing states early this year, increase in freight costs is also proving to be a hurdle for mango exporters,"
said DS Rawat, national secretary general of ASSOCHAM.

"Stiff competition from other mango producing countries, together with a dearth of proper packaging and storage facilities in major mango growing regions are other key concerns of the exporters," said Rawat.




Mango production in India might decline this year by 35-40 percent, due to crop damage following unseasonal rainfall in major growing states, noted the ASSOCHAM study.





With a share of over 23 per cent, Uttar Pradesh is ranked India's leading mango producing state as of 2013-14 followed by Andhra Pradesh (15 per cent), Karnataka (9.5 per cent), Telangana (nine per cent) and Bihar (seven per cent) which remained top five states in this regard.

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.

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…
