In Chile, fruit exports continue to record a remarkable increase (+ 4.3% for the 2016-17 season), which can be explained by better yields but also by an increase in fruit plantations and a perfect match with the demand.

 
 
According to ODEPA data (Oficina de Estudios y Políticas Agrarias), the area of ​​fruit plantations increased from 210,917 hectares in 1997 to 315,735 hectares in 2017, an increase of almost 50% in 20 years.
 
 
 
To this progression of the surfaces is added a modification of the cultures. Some declined, such as table grapes, which accounted for 20.8% of the area in 1997 but only 15.3% today or apples with 18.9% 20 years ago and 11.4% this year .
 
 
 
On the contrary, other crops grew, such as walnuts, which totaled 3.6% of the planted area in 1997, but reached 11.2% in 2017, or cherries, which grew by 2.3% of the total area planted. fruit trees in 1997 to 8% in 2017.
 
 
 
"The growth of fruit plantations confirms a systematic adjustment towards species that have a better commercial perspective in terms of their real potential for greater returns to the producer" commented ASOEX.
