Australia: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AS2022-0022

Australia’s table grape production is expected to increase to 210,000 MT in marketing year (MY) 2022/23, from an estimated 180,000 metric tons (MT) in MY 2021/22. This is with the expectation of slightly improved harvest labor availability and better seasonal conditions at harvest. Despite expanded vine plantings in recent years now coming into fruiting, production has been hindered by challenges. For MY 2021/22 in particular, reduced labor availability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, along with overcast and humid conditions at harvest, not only impacted production but also reduced the volume of export-quality table grapes. Exports are forecast to rise to 130,000 MT in MY 2022/23, mainly due to higher production, from 109,000 MT in MY 2021/22.
