Nueva Zelanda: estimaciones de producción para manzanas y peras año comercial 2021/22
New Zealand’s apple production and exports are forecast to rise in marketing year 2021/22 (January 2022 – December 2022), but remain far below levels previously expected as a result of continued shortages of harvest labor. The combination of reduced labor due to international border closures, as well as a slowdown in picking and packing because of COVID-19 outbreaks amongst staff, is resulting in some lower-value apple orchard blocks not being harvested. In pears are similar to the situation with apples, the combination of reduced harvest labor and a delayed onset of harvest has caused the downward revision in production.
FAS/Wellington has lowered the production forecast for MY 2021/22 to 553,000 metric tons (MT), just three percent up on last year’s revised production estimate. If realized, this crop would also be six percent below the record crop of MY 2019/20.
FAS/Wellington forecasts New Zealand’s pear production at 11,500 MT in MY 2021/22, down from the previous estimate but still a year-on-year increase from MY 2020/21.
