China: "Intensification of pollination influences volumes of plums"
"The production areas of Chinese plums are located in Meishan, Sichuan; Maoming, Guangdong; Gutian, Fujian; and Guizhou province. Under regular weather conditions the plum production season in Meishan begins every year in June and ends in the beginning of July. The production volume of 2017 showed a great increase in comparison with the production volume of 2016. This was in large parts due to the production volume increase by around 30% for the trees that were pollinated." This is according to Mr. Yang Qi of Sichuan Top Grade Modern Agriculture Co., Ltd.
"The main reasons for the production volume increase are stable weather conditions and intensified pollination. It is estimated that prices and production volumes of plums this year will remain stable. However, if the plums meet with cold spring weather during the flower season, or experience a rainy season that interrupts the pollination process, then the production volume will certainly decrease."

"We currently sell our plums predominantly through traditional wholesale markets and in high-end supermarkets in first- and second tier cities. A small volume of our products are sold through e-commerce platforms. In the future, when the conditions are right, we hope to expand our online business and reach new markets."
