Argentina: Final estimates of 2013/14 groundnut crop

  • Argentina: Final estimates of 2013/14 groundnut crop

    Argentinian groundnut portal 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.
