Chile – Pasas: según USDA producción año comercial 2021/22 rozará las 60 mil toneladas
For MY2021/22, Post projects 59,000 MT of raisin production and 56,200 MT of exports. This will represent a one percent decrease in Chilean raisin production and exports.
The decrease can be attributed to a reduction in table grape planted area as farmers switched to more profitable crops such as cherries, walnuts, avocado, and citrus.
Raisin production in Chile relies almost exclusively on table grape production. In MY2020/21 table grape planted area declined by 4.9 percent to 45,489 hectares and it is projected to decrease to 45,000 ha in MY2021/22.
