Argentina’s 2021/22 apple and pear crops are projected to remain relatively stable at 570,000 tons and 590,000 tons respectively, according to USDA data. Apple exports are expected to increase to 100,000 tons while pear exports are projected to drop to 310,000 tons, as exporters continue to be negatively affected by a relative lack of competitiveness in international markets compared to other Southern Hemisphere producers. The Covid-19 pandemic has not had a major impact on the apple and pear industries due to public- private coordination on stringent health protocols.
