India - Mango production in Uttar Pradesh almost 70% less than last year

This year’s mango production in Uttar Pradesh is around 70 percent down on last year (when the output was 4 million tons). A marginal growth in the mango output was expected earlier. The picking of ‘Dussehri’ started late this season due to a poor crop and adverse weather conditions -including hailstorms- in the orchards of Malihabad, which is a part of Lucknow suburb.
