Perú: producción de uvas alcanzará las 700 mil toneladas
Grape production in Peru is forecast to reach 700,000 MT in MY 2021/2022 (October-September), a two percent increase over the previous year. Exports prices and costs were affected by logistical constraints in 2021.
Favorable weather conditions, plenty of water supply, and growing demand for table grapes are driving this increase. Peru has a dry coast with a range of temperatures (between 14 and 30 degrees Celsius) and over 12 hours of sunlight per day, year-round, which makes it an ideal region for grape production. These conditions combined with precision irrigation enables Peru to mature vines 55 percent faster than in neighboring countries.
