At present, most of the mandarins on the market come from Sichuan, and the local oranges will be on the market in large quantities in two weeks time. In October, it was time for the mandarins and the rare cold weather at the beginning of this year damaged the city’s mandarins in large areas. Will this year’s mandarin market be affected? According to statistics, the total mandarin production in Shiyan City this year is estimated at 178,000 tons, which is about 7.15% lower than last year.
The mandarins in Danjiangkou are usually on the market in the middle and late October each year. According to the current market situation, it is estimated that the wholesale price of citrus this year is 0.8 yuan a jin, which is not too big a difference compared with last year. Although the mandarin production in Danjiangkou City has declined this year compared to last year, the citrus production this year will increase from Yichang and Hunan provinces. As a result, the total amount of mandarins on the market will not fluctuate too much, and the price will naturally not rise due to the decline in local production.
The mandarin industry has big and small years, with high annual output in big years and relatively low annual output in small years. Last year was the small year of the mandarin industry in Danjiangkou City. The total output of the city was 210,000 tons. Although it was a big year this year, it encountered freezing damage at the beginning of the year. Otherwise, the total amount of citrus in this city is expected to reach 300,000 tons this year.
