Sinaloa.- As of June 20, the mango harvest corresponding to the 2021 season will begin in the northern part of the state of Sinaloa, reported Daniel Ibarra Lugo.
The president of the Mango Producers and Exporters Association of the free zone of the fruit fly indicated that although at first it had been estimated that there would be a possible increase of 10% in production, at this time it is not yet possible to specify how much the harvest volume will eventually amount, considering that some producers were not able to water their gardens well in the end as a consequence of the problem caused by the lack of sufficient volume of irrigation water in the canals.

He estimated that the number of packages that could operate in this area will be between 17 and 18 infrastructures, although some will not operate at maximum capacity, precisely as a consequence of the problems that will arise due to the lack of water in the canals.
Marketing of the fruit
Regarding the expectations that are presented for the commercialization of the fruit, Daniel Ibarra announced that a very negative outlook is looming for the fruit that is in small sizes because almost all the rest of the country, due to the lack of water, has been sending small size fruit in varieties “balls”, kents, tommys and yellow (ataulfos).
