Mexico - The cold in Sinaloa will affect mango flowering

27.02.2019 159 views
The decrease in temperatures registered during the last days could affect the flowering of the mango trees in the south zone of Sinaloa. The president of the Association of Farmers of the Presidio River, Octavio Loaiza Torres, warned that climatic conditions could affect mango production this season. He said that the low temperatures wouldn't affect the production of corn and beans and that they expected they hoped they wouldn't affect mango. Loaiza Torres said that the last two seasons had been bad for the producers of the south, as last year alone they had a 70% drop in production due to the drought, so it was important they ensure their plantings. Meanwhile, the producers of the Municipality of Escuinapa have forecasted variations of 50 to 70% in the production of mangoes for the next season because the trees are flowering late. However, in Nayarit and in the Municipality of Rosario, the flowering is taking place faster. "Yes, we will be affected. Definitely. We are waiting to see how much. We don't know if 50 or 60% of the crops will be affected in Escuinapa. In Rosario we had a fabulous flowering because there was a lot of water, flowering was also good in Nayarit." Ismael Diaz Murillo, a businessman of the fruit sector, said that the packers would need to bring fruit from other states or neighboring municipalities, even if the increases in freight price had an impact on labor for cutting the fruit, to keep the activity going. "Prices would increase because of freight costs but at least they'll continue to work this season. Packers will continue working. The problem is going to be the harvest labor, as there won't be enough to cut in the municipality," he concluded. Source -
