The normalization of temperatures in Peru will favor mango and grape crops

The recovery of normal temperature values in the region, with a maximum of 28 to 29º C and a minimum of 16 to 17º C, will benefit mango and grape production as both fruits need more levels of radiation in winter, stated the agricultural meteorologist of the National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology (Senamhi), Ninel de Dios.

However, he said, the rise in temperature also increases the risks of fruit fly proliferation, which could affect mango plantations. "This is a factor producers need to be aware of, as many of these crops are exported and Europe has very demanding quality standards," he added.

He also indicated that the climate in the region was normal: "Last year we had a prolonged winter due to La Niña, but now the conditions are almost neutral."
