Mexico: Hurricane Manuel mango losses estimated at 15m dollars
According to the Mayor of Esquinapa, Bonifacio Hernández Bustamante, Hurricane Manuel led to the atypical flowering of the mango, which, in turn, has left losses estimated at nearly 200 million pesos (15,355,000 dollars).
"We hadn't had an atypical flowering for nearly ten years, we are looking for resources that can help the producers, because we will be facing serious economic problems in the south as there won't be much money in circulation," he said.
He reported that the lack of flowering in mango trees was one of the consequences following Hurricane Manuel and that, together with the officials from the town of El Rosario, they were requesting resources from the Federation and the State to send people to collect evidence of the situation.
In the south, there are about 25,000 acres of the Ataulfo, Haiden, Tommy, Kent and Keith varieties. The Kent variety, which accounts for 30 percent of the acres of both municipalities, was the most affected one, he said.
He added that they couldn't evaluate the damage suffered by the Keith variety, as its harvest is at the end of the season.
"We're concerned because there won't be much money in circulations, hence producers won't be paid and there will be no jobs. That's why we are seeking support from the federal and the state authorities," said the businessman.
