Nagesh Shetty - Deccan Produce

Promising season for Indian grapes

Looking forward to the Indian grape season, Nagesh Shetty from Deccan Produce is hopeful for a positive season. "We expect to start harvesting mid January in the Nasik region," he explains.

"The Black, Flame and Thompson will be harvested initially and from March on it will be only Thompson's." Shetty is expecting a better season than last year which ended with excessive arrivals in main markets due to a perceived shortage scenario which never really materialized.

"This season we have had good rain in the monsoon season which has provided good growing conditions. It is still early days but I expect a normal to strong season."

He said exports will be driven by demand and influenced by the other players in the market, "Chilean has seen some frost but this won't affect the European markets too much, they are only 10-15% down and send most of their fruit to the US anyway."

Indian exporters will aim for optimum quantities, I think, we want to make the best possible use of this good crop without being on the wrong side of a market with surplus arrivals.
