Market Update: Mango, Papaya, Ginger, Cantaloupe
The suppliers are approaching the end crop within May. The current supply year remains better compared to Y2021.
Farmers started to plant for the incoming crop during Sept-Nov. But based on the initial survey, it seems that farmers tend to grow less this year as ginger is one of the fruits that need high fertilizer or, in a way, requires higher plantation (investment), and the drop in price during the Y2021 crop.
However, we should see a more precise picture of this new crop in early June.
The supply remains less & not much changes from April 2022. The peak season for coconut will be in Q3.
Still, the supply remains less due to the lack of labor for plantations and harvest.
