Philippines - Luzon mango production drops by 70 percent

A mango industry leader in Pangasinan province last week stated that unless cecid flies were wiped out soon, mango production in all of Luzon would continue to plummet and the industry would be headed for collapse.

Mango production this season had dropped by at least 70 percent because of widespread infestation of cecid flies, leading to huge losses for mango growers and contractors.
