Chilean avocado production is expected to decline again during the present 2012/13 production season compared to the last season. Adverse weather conditions, alternate bearing effect in some production areas and a severe drought which is affecting an increased production area in the most important production region, are responsible for the significant fall in production and exports for this season. For the 2013/14 season, output is forecasted to increase again, as an abundant blooming in most production areas forecasts a good production if weather conditions remain normal.
