Mexico: Michoacan will export 815,000 tons of agricultural products

Michoacán will have placed some 815,000 tons of agricultural products this year, which will position it as one of the top entities in this area, said Pedro Benitez Velez, delegate of Sagarpa.

The delegate spoke before leading producer organizations and representatives of the National Institute of Nuclear Research during the signing of the agreement for the development of an irradiation plant's technical study. The export list, he said, was headed by avocados, with 628,000 tons; followed by mangoes with 91,000, limes, 23,000 tons, blackberries, 15,000 tons, melon, 14,000, grapefruit, 13,000, and guava with 10,000 tons shipped to various markets, mainly the US.

Sagarpa's delegate stated that the installation of the new plant would allow them to increase the export volumes of these and other products, as it will remove all things, such as pesticides, chemicals and pests, which impede Michoacan's products from accessing international markets, as they don't meet phytosanitary standards.
