India, the world’s main mango producer, is bracing for a devastating crop loss in 2022 as farmers report a delayed harvest of the “king of fruits” because of heatwaves and unseasonal rains.

Climate change is being blamed for damaging the mango harvest, with fruit falling to the ground early or trees infested with pests. The mango harvest this year in Uttar Pradesh, one of India’s main producing regions, is now expected to be less than half of the usual 4-5 million tonnes.

印度作为世界上最大的芒果🥭生产国,2022年因为热量和不规律的降雨,导致大规模果树减产,农民也不能及时采收。

气候变迁被认为是这次芒果减产的元凶,果子在未成熟就掉在了地上,然后树木也出现了虫害。在今年印度芒果的一个主产区,今年收获的芒果是往年4-5百吨的一半都不到。不光印度,周围南亚国家芒果都出现了大量减产。
