Chile: Stone Fruit Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CI2021-0013

Chilean cherry planted area has historically grown year over year. Post estimates area planted to reach a new record of 44,000 hectares in MY2021/22. Cherry productivity will likely decrease in MY2021/22 due to drought and production adjustments that Chilean producers will make to increase size and quality. For MY2021/22, Post expects a three percent increase in cherry production and a three percent increase in exports over MY2020/21 levels. FAS Santiago estimates that cherry production will reach 395,000 MT, while exports rise to 364,000 metric tons. For MY2021/22, Post estimates that fresh peach and nectarine production will total 160,000 MT, a 0.6 percent decrease over MY2020/21. The decrease is due to lower productivity and steady planted area. Peach and nectarine exports will only reach 98,000 MT, a one percent decrease from MY2020/21.
