USDA: Reporte sobre las producciones de manzanas, peras y uva de mesa en argentina para la temporada 2017/18
Apple, pear, and table grape production in 2017/2018 is estimated to increase to 550,000 MT, 600,000 MT, and 45,000 MT, respectively, due to good weather conditions, but it will remain below historical averages due to the lack of profitability for Argentine producers and exporters.
Apple and pear exports are estimated to increase to 80,000 MT and 280,000 MT, respectively, and table grape exports will decrease to 4,000 MT. Exports will remain below historical levels for the three fruits due to lack of competitiveness of Argentine exporters in international markets.
Apple and pear domestic consumption will increase for all three fruits to 270,000 MT for apples, 120,000 MT for pears, and 43,000 MT for table grapes due to an increase in production and the difficulties that local exporters are facing to compete in the export market.
