U.S. Sanitation Team Gives OK to Brazil Mango

A group of technicians from the Department of Agriculture of the United States has agreed to the sanitation conditions of the mango produced in Bahia, state in the Northeast region of Brazil.

This means exports from the region to America are likely to continue. Nine technicians made surveillance visits between the September 4 to September 6.


The São Francisco Valley exports mango to the United States since 1998. Only last year, the region sold 28,000 tons of fruit, with revenues of US$ 19 million. The information is from Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.


2004/2005 Harvest


Brazilian 2004/2005 grains production is of 113.5 million tons. The volume is 4.7% smaller than in the 2003/2004 harvest, of 119.1 million tons, according to announcement made by the National Supply Company (Conab). The planted area, on the other hand, increased by 2.8%, going from 47.42 million hectares to 48.74 million hectares.


If compared to the estimate of 131.92 million tons, made by the Conab in December last year, the break in production reaches 14%, equivalent to 18.4 million tons.


Brazilian revenues with coffee exports, however, increased by 47.4% in August in relation to the same month last year. In the accumulated figures from January to August, there was an increase in 58.7% in the volume exported in relation to the same months in 2004, according to Cecafé, the Brazilian Coffee Exporters Council.
