Argentina: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Semi-annual

For CY 2018, production of the two types of fresh deciduous fruit is forecast to decrease to 530,000 MT for apples and 530,000 MT for pears from official USDA estimates. Exports are expected to increase but will remain below normal levels due to lack of competitiveness of local exporters in international markets, and domestic consumption will go down following the production decrease.
