PREOCUPANTE LA BAJA PRODUCTIVIDAD DEL MANGO PERUANO .

Insisten en necesidad de un seguro agrario
Producción de mango no llegará al 50% calculado












Los cambios climáticos registrados este año terminaron por afectar el cultivo de mango cuya producción se reducirá al 40%, “eso siendo optimistas”, consideró Manuel Barranzuela, del valle de San Lorenzo, ya que podría incluso ser menor.

Según explicó Barranzuela, en las 20 mil hectáreas que anualmente se cultivan en su zona –y a diferencia de los dos últimos años- el 2011 sólo el 45% de lo sembrado ha floreado. De este porcentaje hay que calcular si producirá en su totalidad porque aún falta el cuajado.
“En realidad ha sido un año complicado. Hemos tenido un invierno caluroso y una primavera fría, y por eso se están presentando estos problemas. Sólo queda proyectarnos con ese 45% o 40%, aunque no necesariamente garantice que esa sea la productividad que vayamos a tener”, advirtió.

Indicó que es una situación preocupante ya que no e…

THE NEW, HIGH-TECH MIAMI CULINARY INSTITUTE AIMS TO TRANSFORM TEACHING WHILE ELEVATING THE WHOLE CITY

Since 1983, November has been the highest-visibility time of year for Miami-Dade College. That was the year Eduardo Padron, then president of the school’s downtown Wolfson Campus, joined Mitchell Kaplan of Books & Books to launch a modest local literature festival called Books by the Bay.




To the astonishment of nearly everyone in a town where golf courses and gun shops vastly outnumbered bookstores, the event drew a crowd of 25,000 people.

These days the Miami Book Fair International, now the USA’s biggest literary event and South Florida’s primo cultural happening, draws hundreds of world-famous authors and publishers, and crowds topping 500,000 -- every November.

The book fair is an innovation that has made Miami-Dade College a household word.

Actually, MDC has been known for growth and innovation -- of …

MANGO (INDIA) MEETS CHERRY (JAPAN) IN DANCE PERFORMANCE IN TORONTO, CANADA

In search of the familiar ‘other’
FRIDAY, 04 NOVEMBER 2011 




Through their dance-drama,Hiroshi Miyamoto and Navtej Johar try to explore their cultural selves. By Team Viva
A duet between two Asian men who seek to explore their cultural selves, their similarities and their differences in the presence of a “familiar” other formed the backdrop of Navtej Johar-Hiroshi Miyamoto’s dance-drama performance, Mango Cherry Mix as part of the ongoing Delhi International Arts Festival (DIAF). 

Eliciting a sympathetic examination of the self by the other, the work sought to gradually eliminate or diminish the power of an objectifying eye to the other. 

Though both the cultures traditionally are rigidly structured around the philosophical and spiritual possibility of an ambiguous “emptiness,” a shunya or a Zen experience at the centre yet both employ different if not diametrically opposed methods to evoke and protect this experience.

Mango Cherry Mix tries to locate these cultural experiences within the mo…

Mango grower associations expect to share and consolidate worldwide market information



Barranquilla – At the occasion of the Sixth International Congress of Peruvian Mango, held in Piura (Peru) last August, representatives from South Africa, Brazil, Ecuador and Peru signed a "declaration of commitment" to provide accurate and timely information regarding the real mango exports to Europe and both coasts of the United States.
