MADRID/SACRAMENTO. Official almond production estimates have been called into question in Spain. Issue is that the National Farmers and Stockbreeders Union anticipates a much smaller production this year. Things may also not be quite as encouraging in California.

Mood is turning

While AEOFRUSE, Spain's Association of Dried Fruit Producers, estimates that this year's inshell produciton will exceed 109,000 mt, the National Dried Fruit Board of Agri-Food Cooperatives reckons that production will range lower at 84,048 mt. As both organisations base their estimates on different data they even draw different conclusions on acreage. The National Union of Farmers and Stockbreeders (Unión de Uniones de Agricultores y Ganaderos) has now issued an estimate that ranges even lower at 76,035 mt, which is a 20% decline on last year.
