Send to a friend  Printable version  Translate the page

Despite a slight increase in the agricultural area dedicated to apple crops, South Korea is expected to decline by 2.8% of its production for the marketing year 2017/18 (July-June).

 
 
 
According to the recent USDA FAS report, Korean apple production is estimated at 560 000 tonnes, about 2.8% lower than the previous season (576 369 tonnes). This decline is the result of hail damage in early June in the main apple production area (Gyeongsang province). The area of ​​apples is expected to increase slightly (+ 0.9%) to a total of 33,600 hectares in the country.
 
 
 
Korean exports of fresh apples are low, accounting for about 1% of total production. Thus, during the  2016 year, the country exported about 4 000 tons of apples. Taiwan is the largest export market with 60% (2,389 tons), followed by Singapore (11.6%) and Hong Kong (10%).
 
 
 
South Korea imports about 10 000 tonnes of processed apple products per year (juice, dried apples). But not a fresh apple due to an existing quarantine
