In recent years, mango is a key export fruit of Vietnam thanks to its large raw material area. Like Dong Thap province, mango is also selected as one of the five commodities to implement the restructuring scheme.

The total area of ​​mango growing in the country is over 114,000 ha; in which the Mekong River Delta accounts for nearly half.

In 2021, Vietnam’s mango export turnover is more than 180 million USD, accounting for just over 1% of total world mango exports.

The main export market of Vietnamese mangoes is China, accounting for nearly 84%, reaching nearly 152 million USD; Next is the market of Russia, the United States, Korea, EU, Australia, Japan… The prerequisite when exporting mango is traceability.

Particularly in the Mekong Delta, there are now nearly 300 growing area codes issued for export.

Notably, the area of ​​mango growing according to VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards of the region is nearly 2,000 hectares, accounting for nearly 4% of the total area. It is necessary to further expand the standard mango growing area to meet export requirements, which is a requirement for localities.

Loss of crops in the world’s mango granary

Mango is also one of the favorite tropical fruits and grown in many countries around the world, so it is quite difficult for Vietnam to get to the market.

India is considered the world’s mango bowl, accounting for 55% of global production. However, this year will be a bad year for mango farmers in India. 80% of India’s mango production has been lost to extreme weather.

Indians love mangoes and they take pride in their mangoes too. The country currently grows more than 1,500 varieties of mango, which are exported around the world, accounting for 55% of global production.

This year, however, the Indian mango is facing a sad reality. Output has dropped by as much as 80%. The record-breaking heat in March and April ruined the flowering period of mangoes, while erratic rains caused pests to thrive.

The president of the All India Mango Growers Association said he had never seen such a drastic drop in mango production in his entire life.

The traditional Indian mango season is from March to June every year. This is one of the main export items of this country, each year exporting to the world nearly 50,000 tons.

India’s Times Now newspaper reported that, after rice and wheat, mango is the next crop to fall victim to an unusually intense heat wave in recent months. The price of Indian domestic mangoes is at 100 Rupees/kg, more than 30,000 VND.

The current situation makes New Delhi worry that it will lose its export market share, especially in the leading markets of Indian mangoes such as the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar or Kuwait.

Farmers have always considered rain and sunshine as a matter of heaven, they accepted. But now climate change seems to be pushing Indian farmers to the threshold of tolerance.

As noted by the Indian Post Newspaper, mango fruit production has actually decreased continuously in the past 3 years because of inclement weather. Up to this year, as recorded in one gardener, there are only less than 5 trees left with less than 5 fruit trees left of 100 trees. Not only mango, wheat, rice… tomato production in India is also suffering heavy losses, in some places down 80%.

Son La promotes mango consumption

The loss of the mango crop in India will greatly reduce the world supply of this agricultural product and Vietnam will have the opportunity to expand the market.

Now is the time when both the South and the North have mango production entering the harvest. In order to plan output, as well as seize market opportunities, recently, the Conference to connect consumption and export of mango and agricultural products in Son La province 2022 was held with 29 domestic and foreign demand points.
