Pasas/Chile : USDA estima producción de 61.850 toneladas en 2022/23
Raisin production in Chile relies almost exclusively on table grape production. For marketing year (MY) 2022/23, Post projects 61,850 metric tons (MT) of raisin production, a 1.5 percent decrease from MY 2021/22. Raisin exports will total 59,000 MT, a 1.7 percent decrease from MY 2021/22.
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. In MY 2021/22 planted area totaled 43,104 hectares (ha), a 5.4 percent decrease from MY 2020/21. Planted area is projected to decrease to 40,950 ha in MY
