Favorable growing conditions in 2014/15 will drive increased production of Japanese cherries and peaches.
Cherry production for 2014-15 is forecast to expand to 18,000 MT, 12 per cent above the previous year, with the harvest area significantly revised upwards.
Chile’s production estimates for peaches and nectarines are expected to recuperate after a significant fall during this marketing as a result of a heavy frost last September.
