For MY 2020/21, Post revises down its estimate for fresh apple production to 560,000 MT. Fresh pear production is estimated to increase to 620,000 MT. Exports are projected to fall to 100,000 MT for apples but remain stable at 320,000 MT for pears, in line with USDA Official. The COVID-19 pandemic has had no major impact on the apple and pear industries due to public-private coordination on stringent protocols. However, ongoing economic and financial difficulties continue to undermine Argentine fruit exporters’ competitiveness in international markets.
