Peru exported a total of 127,114 tons of mango between November 2020 and January 2021, i.e. 15% less than in the same period of the previous season, according to the president of the consulting firm Inform@cción, Fernando Cilloniz.

In November 2020, Peru exported 9,000 tons of fresh mango (10,000 tons in November 2019). In December 2020, the country shipped 41,576 tons (52,817 tons in December 2019), and in January 2021 it exported 76,538 tons (85,465 tons in January 2020).

“Historically, Peru makes its largest shipments of fresh mango in January. However, the export volume in January of this season decreased by nearly 9,000 tons over the same month of last season. That's not good news," he said.

The main destination markets for Peru's fresh mango are the Netherlands and the United States. They are followed by Spain, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Korea, Canada, Russia, and Chile, among others.

The Peruvian Association of Mango Producers and Exporters (APEM) forecasted the country would export nearly 207,000 tons of fresh mango in the 2020/2021 season, i.e. 12% less than the 235,000 tons shipped in the previous season. This drop is due to the decrease in production caused by the delays of up to two weeks in flowering because of the low temperatures there were in mid-2020, and the drought issues in October, particularly in the northern part of the country.

Blueberry boom: Worldwide growth creates challenges for NW producers

Overview of the northwest blueberry season by Doug Krahmer of Berries Northwest, Cort Brazelton of Fall Creek Farm and Nursery, Kasey Cronquist of the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council and Mark Hurst of Hurst's Berry Farm, complemented by charts from Agronometrics. Original published in  on July 30, 2020 ALBANY, Ore. — On a seasonably warm July afternoon in the fertile Willamette Valley, Doug Krahmer stood between rows of organic blueberries and watched as a large mechanical harvester rolled slowly through the field, rattling bushes heavy with ripe fruit. Measuring a little more than 15 feet tall, 11 feet wide and weighing 7 tons, the harvester seemingly floated in the distance over neat rows while fiberglass rods, or “fingers,” shook the berries onto a conveyor belt that swooped them to the upper deck and into plastic crates. From there, the crates were loaded into refrigerated trucks and driven from the farm north of Albany, Ore., to a packing shed ea

Agronometrics in Charts: The Role of Mexican Blueberries in the U.S. Market

As Mexico's season just reached its peak, the opportunity lends itself to look a bit deeper at the origin in the U.S. markets. The rise of Mexican blueberries in the U.S. market has been no small achievement. In 2010, they represented a mere blip on the map. In 2019, with 75 M lbs, they were the second largest importer of fresh blueberries to the U.S., second only to Chile, but with Peru trailing closely behind Mexico.

Chile has grown considerably, the U.S.’s production has evened out more, pushing more volume into April and May, and of course, Mexico is now a primary source through this time period.   U.S. Volumes by Origin 2010 | Non-Organic   U.S. Volumes by Origin 2019 | Non-Organic Source: USDA Market News via Agronometrics .
