Chile: Pronósticos de las exportaciones de manzanas, uvas y peras
For marketing year (MY) 2017/18 fresh apples exports are expected to reach 731,000 metric tons (MT) following a surge in exports in the months of April and May to levels of a regular year. Chilean table grape exports are projected to reach 720,000 MT, a 1.5 percent decrease over MY2016/17 while pear exports are expected to reach 140,000 MT, a 6.6 percent decrease over MY2016/17.
Chile’s abundant rainfall during the winter allowed water reservoirs to reach full capacity that would likely secure irrigation for up to five marketing years. Yields are expected to reach average levels of a normal year.
