Almendras: 15% disminuirá la producción de la Unión Europea
The European Union is one of the world’s leading producers and consumers of almonds.
Furthermore, the EU-27 is the single largest export region for California almonds, with Spain as the leading European importer. Every year, California almond production is exported to more than 100 countries worldwide, and in 2020, the EU-27 represented 32 percent of California’s total almond exports.
For Marketing Year (MY) 2021/22, the latest official forecast published by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA) estimates a production of 94,293 MT (shelled basis).
In 2020, the total area in Spain planted with almond trees was 718,540 hectares (HA), of which 600,338 correspond to non-irrigated and 118,202 HA to irrigated production.
The almond harvest in Spain in MY 2021/22 is estimated to be 12 percent lower than the previous year, despite the increase in productive area due to the large number of intensive and super-intensive almond orchards planted in recent years that has already begun to enter production.
