According to the latest USDA report, this rise is due to favourable weather conditions, which have restored yields from 2022/23. Apple exports are expected to increase to 81,854 tons, while pear exports are expected to rise to 317,200 tons. Domestic consumption is also predicted to grow in line with the production increases. The number of fruit producers in the country continues to decline due to high production costs, low fruit prices, and increased competition for land from other sectors. However, the overall outlook for the Argentine fresh deciduous fruit production in 2023/2024 remains positive.
