"Es el método que usamos para cambiar de variedad aprovechando parte del tronco y las raíces del viejo árbol."

Para comer en Octubre si Dios quiere" .....

Para algunos amigos que me pidieron el Proceso de Reinjerto en árboles de mango viejos.

A los 2- 3 años se vuelve a cosechar con la nueva variedad.

En este caso el cambio fué de Kent a Tommy por varias razones y lo hicimos en 3.000 árboles.

1) Cortar la corteza para que entre la yema

2) 4 yemas o mas amarradas con cinta plástica para que presionen tronco y yema

3) Se coloca bolsa p…

INDIA 2015 : Mango exports to touch 45k tonne as new markets emerge worldwide

As the mango season is coming to an end, mango exports have stopped from Maharashtra and Gujarat, but a few tonnes are being exported from Uttar Pradesh.

As the mango season is coming to an end, mango exports have stopped from Maharashtra and Gujarat, but a few tonnes are being exported from Uttar Pradesh.

 Government statistics reveals that some 9,000 tonne of mango have been exported from Maharashtra to Europe this season as against 7,000 tonne the previous year.

Since Europe lifted the ban on Indian mangoes, the produce has gone through hot-water treatment and has been sent to the EU, senior officials with the state horticulture department said.

The officials estimated the total mango exports from the country to touch some 45,000 tonne and said collating data would take time. Some 329 tonne of mango has been sent to the USA from the irradiation facility located at Nashik, while a nominal 3 tonne of mango has found its way to the Japanese …


Senate Committee Advances Agriculture Appropriations Bill

Posted on 07/21/2015 by Britt Aasmundstad

The Senate Appropriations Committee passed a $20.5 billion agriculture appropriations bill last Thursday. The funding levels outlined by the Senate are $3.7 billion below the enacted FY2015 amounts.

Of note, the Senate would appropriate $876 million for APHIS--$5 million above FY2015 levels. The Senate language outlines $45 million for food safety activities—FSMA—compared to $40 million from the House. The FSMA language includes $8 million to support the integrated food safety system.

Furthermore, the Senate would provide $168 million for NASS; the House committee would appropriate approximately $161 million. The president requested $180 million for NASS in FY2016.

Compared to the House approved language, the Senate bill contains far fewer policy riders. The Senate bill would extend the ban on horse slaughter another year, require labeling of GE salmon, continue to waive whole-grains require…

CAMBODIA : Mango Exports Looking Sweeter

PHNOM PENH (Khmer Times) – Mango exporters in Kampong Speu province are gaining traction in Asian markets and expect overseas deliveries to increase by 50 percent in the coming season.

In Chhay Van, president of the Kampong Speu Mango Association, projects that the association’s members will export nearly 150,000 tons of mangoes during the upcoming season, which runs October through May. 

If achieved, it would mark a significant increase over the last season, which saw 100,000 tons of mango shipments.

“Nowadays, we have only two markets for our mangoes, Thailand and Vietnam, [which import] even though they have huge amounts of their own mangoes,”Mr. Chhay Van said.

The association is pushing to open new regional markets, and the Cambodian government is currently negotiating with China and South Korea to secure new export contracts.

“South Korea requires that products undergo mechanical food safety inspections before entering the market, but we …

Costs killing northern dream, says Galati

Perth vegetable grower Tony Galati says his family-owned business has to pay $120,000 a year to water his Ord River mango crops.

One of WA’s biggest farmers has issued a warning for potential investors in the Ord River irrigation scheme.

Tony Galati said he was not interested in the State Government's latest release of 5000ha of land on the Ord and was becoming disillusioned about the future of farming in the far north.

Mr Galati said water charges, the harsh environment and the high cost of labour and getting produce to market were major hurdles.

The Galati Group began operations on the Ord after snapping up farmland and a huge packing shed from receivers for the failed managed investment scheme Rewards in 2012.

Its plans to base a $50 million-a-year banana industry employing about 500 people on the Ord now look like a pipedream.

The family-owned business is also deeply concerned about the threat Mediterranean …

STRATFOR ANALYSIS : The Turkish Enigma

Geopolitical Weekly

JULY 21, 2015 | 08:00 GMT

By George Friedman

In my "Net Assessment of the World," I argued that four major segments of the European and Asian landmass were in crisis: Europe, Russia, the Middle East (from the Levant to Iran) and China. 

Each crisis was different; each was at a different stage of development. 

Collectively the crises threatened to destabilize the Eurasian landmass, the Eastern Hemisphere, and potentially generate a global crisis. 

They do not have to merge into a single crisis to be dangerous. 

Four simultaneous crises in the center of humanity's geopolitical gravity would be destabilizing by itself. 

However, if they began to merge and interact, the risks would multiply. Containing each crisis by itself would be a daunting task. Managing crises that were interlocked would press the limits of manageability and even push beyond.

These four crises are already interacting to some extent. The crisis of the European Union intersects with the parall…
