Alphonso crop downgraded

This article was originally published in Foodnews

INDIA is revising its mango estimate downwards, following a prolonged spate of cool weather. Still, national production this season is expected to be 7% above last year's level, Bijay Kumar, managing director of India's National Horticulture Board (NHB), told news sources. Previous estimates had forecast an increase of as much as 25%. However, conflicting reports of the progress of India's mango harvest form part of the annual harvest pattern. India's total mango production in 2010 reached 15.02 million tonnes. Alphonso volumes, the most popular export variety, stood at 1.7 million tonnes. This year's Alphonso fruiting is about the same as last year, Kumar added.
