SNAFU : Mango Crop Report Alert from the National Mango Board










IMO NOTE:


The original email sent out by NMB was difficult to understand.


The email mistakenly claims that :



Total shipments for the week ending October 10, 2015 were: 8742,896 boxes. 

  • During the same week last year, volume shipped was approximately 5838,256 boxes.


If you will notice, this must be a mistake, because never have more than three million cartons entered USA during a single week. This is done during the peak of the Mexican Season.

With Brazil alone, the weekly volume has never exceeded one million cartons. Nowhere near the Five million reported by the National mango Board earlier today. 


The same is true for last season, when the total import number would be closer to one million than the 5 million plus listed today.




A Review of USDA mango import data:


https://www.marketnews.usda.gov/mnp/fv-report-top-filters?type=movement&locAbr=&locName=&commName=MANGOES&startIndex=1&rowDisplayMax=25&portal=fv&navType=byComm&navClass=FRUITS&termNavClass=&shipNavClass=&movNavClass=&stateID=&volume=&repType=movementDaily&commAbr=MANGO&tranAbr=&environment=&organic=&repDate=10%2F10%2F2015&Go=Go




707 (10,000 lb. units) were imported into USA from Brazil for the week ending October 10, 2015. 


This translates into 7,070,000 lbs divided by 2.2 lbs = 3,213,636 kgs divided by 4 kgs = 803,409 cartons from Brazil....for the week ending October 10, 2015.






Here is the corrected version:


THIS REPORT FROM NATIONAL MANGO BOARD (NMB) IS STILL FRAUGHT WITH MISTAKES ...

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 ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
