Australia: Mareeba mango growers struggle this season

Mango growers from Mareeba in far north Queensland say they are experiencing one of their worst seasons in a long time. Cartons of mangoes are selling for as little as $4 in southern markets, but farmers need about $12 just to break even. The district`s Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association says several growing regions have harvested at the same time, causing a glut of fruit.

President Joe Moro says the problem is only going to get worse because too many trees are being planted across the country. `It`s really going to be a difficult time to be a mango grower and remain viable, in my opinion`, he said. `You really have to ask yourself what some of these people are doing by planting more trees, at a time when we`ve been entering a period of oversupply for the last five years.`
