TodoMani informed on November 5th that, according to
satellite images, the Grain Exchange Cordoba revised its final estimates of
2013/14 groundnut crop.
The total in shell groundnut
production of Cordoba, San Luis and La Pampa regions is estimated at 997,225
tons, which is 1.9% lower than the past campaign. The in-shell yields for the
three provinces averaged 2.6 tons/ha - 2.2% lower compared to the 2012/2013.
The average shell/kernel ratio for the three States was 5% higher than
2012/13. Although the rainfall pattern during the summer months
favored the crop development, they were a problem at the beginning of the
harvest. Unstable weather and high humidity during April and May adversely
affected the normal shell drying, with the consequent delay in days between the
torn and harvest time exceeding 60 days and a yield loss of 100 to 500 kg/ha.
The estimations of groundnut planted area and production
in Cordoba region during the current groundnut campaign are tabulated further.
According to satellite images, the final in-shell groundnut production is
estimated to be 2.3% lower than the previous season, following the decrease in
planted and harvested areas and yields. However, shelled groundnut output is
foreseen to be 2.7% higher. The cause is the raise of shell/kernel ratio
following favorable rainfall conditions during the filling stage.
