"There is mango"

The president of the Peruvian Association of Mango Producers and Exporters, Joaquin Balarezo, said they hadn't had a problem with the flowering of mango, and that they were getting ready to export 100,000 tons of fruit, just as they did last year. He also stated that the rains could damage the fruit.

Peru: Thousands of hectares threatened by rain





Ninell Dedios, a specialist form the Regional SENAMHI, said that the possible year-end rains in Piura could jeopardize 153,500 hectares of various crops including, coast mango, grape, lemon, organic bananas, rice.



Meanwhile, the regional director of Agro Rural from the Ministry of Agriculture, Eduardo Pineda, said that there were more than 180,000 hectares installed in Piura, but that the ones that were at a greater risk were in the coastal area because the production in the mountains was used to the rains.






Pineda estimated that 54,000 hectares (30%) would be at risk. 


"The crops from the mountains aren't as exposed to the rains, the problem is in the coastal area that's in the lower part of the region," he said.







The specialist said that some crops had already begun to be affected by high temperatures. 


For example, he said, the mango had a low bloom; the leaves of the potato plants are withering, and also wheat and peas have been affected. 





If there are heavy rains, he said, the problem could increase as blocked roads could affect exports. 



The risk of pests, such as fruit fly, increases; and coffee may be affected by rust. "We have 58 varieties of crops installed throughout the region. If the rains begin in January, we would have serious problems; for example, with the mango, not only with its performance but also with its quality. Having rains like in the past Niño phenomena would be disastrous for the crops," he said.






The official said that the rains could affect 40,000 hectares of rice installed due to the fact their harvest should take place between December and January. The existing 7,500 hectares of organic bananas could also be damaged by moisture.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

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.
