Peruvian mandarin exports are seeing a notable increase in volume as well as in value so far this season, with both rising by at least a quarter compared to the 2020 season.

Up until June 20, Peruvian early variety mandarin exports totaled over 54,000 metric tons (MT) at US$61 million, according to Agraria. This shows a 25 percent increase in volume and a 30 percent rise in value year-on-year.

It's estimated that in July, mandarin exports could reach over 62,000MT at $71 million, which would mean a growth of 31 percent in volume and 35 percent in value year-on-year, the publication reported.

Peruvian mandarin offerings include early varieties such as satsumas and clementines, as well as later kinds like hybrids. Early variety mandarins are usually exported between the first week of April and the second week of July. The season normally ends in October.

Peruvian exports of satsuma and clementines to the U.S. totaled over 14,000MT at $19 million with shipments falling eight percent in volume and remaining similar in value. Despite the decrease in exports to the U.S., it remains the main destination for early variety mandarins with a 26 percent share.

Peruvian exports of late variety mandarins to the Netherlands grew 68 percent in volume and 72 percent in value, totaling over 5,000MT for $9 million.

Canada saw a decline in volume and value year-on-year, 22 and 24 percent less, respectively. The country holds a nine percent share of Peruvian satsuma mandarins and clementines, a six percent decline from last year.

After the early mandarin season, the late varieties follow between June and September among which Murcott, Nadorcott and Malvaceo stand out.

Through June 20, late variety mandarin exports totaled almost 14,000MT, a 69 percent increase year-on-year.

The main destinations were China, with a 37 percent share and the U.S. at 34 percent.

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: Demand for berries skyrockets in 2021

This time for the ‘In Charts’ series we will give an update as to how the average prices of berries have been behaving. Specifically, we will look at the prices of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries in the United States market and compare them with previous seasons. An increase in demand, brought on by the tendency to consume “superfoods” such as berries during the Covid-19 pandemic, seem to have pushed prices up despite the fact that volumes imported by the United States have been similar or higher than those of previous years. Let's look at each particular case: Blueberries Blueberry prices experienced a significant increase from week 3 of 2021, showing the highest prices of the last 5 seasons for the same date. If we observe the following chart, we can see that, for week 7 of 2021, the average price of conventional blueberries was $7.60 per kilo. This is 24 percent higher than in 2020 when the average price was $6.14 per kilo. Volumes for blueberr
