Productores de mango como novias de rancho ...

Tonalá.- “Tenemos más del año que nos prometieron que seriamos beneficiados con programa Proyecto Trópico Húmedo y hoy aún estamos en esperan que aterricen los recursos”, dicen productores de mango.


Ante corresponsales de los medios de comunicación de circulación estatal denunciaron que la inconformidad estriba en que a pesar de que ya fue entregada la documentación que integra el expediente, los productores de mango no han recibido ningún recurso del citado programa.


En tanto que ingenieros agrónomos y extensionistas rurales de esta región expresaron que la “demora” que hay en el programa Proyecto Trópico Húmedo” en aterrizar en las huertas de mangos, se debe en gran parte a las reglas de operación a la que calificaron ser muy complicadas; además la mayoría de los productores de mango desconocen cómo opera el citado programa.


En este sentido, los especialistas en agronomía, para despejar dudas, explicaron que el programa operará en las zonas de…

Ventarrón daña cultivo de mango en Oaxaca ...

Enviado por hluna el 10 Mar 2012 - 23:01.



Fuertes vientos registrados recientemente causaron pérdidas severas en unas 18 mil hectáreas sembradas de mango de exportación en los municipios de Chahuites, Santo Domingo Zanatepec, San Pedro Tapanatepec, Ixhuatán y Reforma de Pineda, región del Istmo de Tehuantepec, informó un representante de los productores afectados, Julio César Urbieta Salinas.


El dirigente campesino dijo que los vientos de 95 hasta 120 kilómetros por hora se presentaron los pasados días 3, 4, 5 y 6, y como consecuencia provocaron la caída del fruto de las variedades Tommy y Ataulfo.


“Antes cosechábamos dos mil cajas por hectárea, ahora con este desastre no alcanzaremos ni 200”, asentó.


Explicó que los mangos derribados por el aire no podrán ser comercializados en Estados Unidos, Canadá, Japón y otros países porque no alcanzaron su maduración requerida.


“El futuro no es nada halagador”, insistió.


Además, resaltó que la afectación climatológica ha puesto en una situación difí…

Oaxaca, Mexico mango growers battered by winds ...

Mexican mango farmers fear crop losses due to fierce winds



March 13th, 2012







Strong winds of 95-120 kilometers (59-75 miles) per hour have hit some of Mexico’s key mango-exporting areas, website Noticiasnet.mx reported.


Growers claim up to 18,000 hectares of mango plantations in Chahuites, Santo Domingo Zanatepec, San Pedro Tapanatepec, Ixhuatán and Reforma de Pineda municipalities, have been affected.



Producer representative Julio César Urbieta Salinas told the website a succession of strong winds for the last few days meant Tommy and Ataulfo varities had fallen off branches.



“Before we were harvesting 2,000 boxes per hectare but now with this disaster we won’t even reach 200. The future isn’t looking good,” he was quoted as saying.



He said the adverse weather put 1000 producers in a difficult situation where they may not be able to meet their credit commitments of some MXN100 million (US$ 7.87 million) borrowed from lender Financiera Rural.

DRAGON MART: Chinese colony in Cancun ??? ...

Dragon Mart will invest $150 million dollars in Cancun

23/03/2011 21:05


No later than November 2012 should be operating the Dragon Mart Cancun, the second area of exhibition and sale of Chinese goods in the world outside of the Asian giant announced Hao Feng, Chairman of Chinamex, international consortium that brings this concept to Mexico.

It provides an initial investment of $150 million dollars for the project and the generation of 5,000 direct jobs, not counting the Chinese community workers who occupy the housing complex of 4,000 homes that are included within the project of 840,000 square meters.

If this come true, could settle Mexico’s largest Chinese community, since it is estimated that inhabit this complex in a number not less than 5.000, said Francisco Armand Pimentel, Economic Development Secretary of Quintana Roo and one of the major driver of this plan.

The project, the official said, should be viewed with a boost from the Chinese government to small and medium businesses to …

Ruiz Sales continues to push for retailer accountability on food safety

By John Groh | February 23, 2012




Richard and Laura Ruiz of Ruiz Sales in Edinburg, TX.







The challenges associated with producing and distributing safe food must be shared across the supply chain, including — and especially — among retailers, according to Richard Ruiz, president of Ruiz Sales.



This has become a mantra for Mr. Ruiz, whose Edinburg, TX-based firm distributes limes, key limes, papayas, jicama, mangos, pineapples and other fruits and vegetables to leading retail chains in the Rio Grande Valley and beyond.




“On the retail end, they need to step it up and only buy from reputable suppliers,” said Mr. Ruiz. “Consumers depend on us as an industry to provide high-quality and safe food, and that needs to be our commitment. This year could be the same or worse than 2011 if we don’t get our act together as an industry.”




Mr. Ruiz said that Ruiz Sales is committed to achieving proper food-safety certifications, and that is something that all suppliers should be doing. Yet it is not uncommon…

CARICOM wants Haiti to ratify new Prime Minister as recently appointed P.M. resigns ...

Monday, March 12, 2012






PARAMARIBO, Suriname (CMC) — Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders say they were looking forward "to the early ratification" of a new prime minister for Haiti following the sudden resignation of Prime Minister Dr Garry Conille last month.


President Michel Martelly has already nominated his foreign minister Laurent Lamothe to replace Dr Conille, and lawmakers in the opposition-controlled parliament, the lower Chamber of Deputies and the upper Senate chamber, will have to approve the choice of Lamothe, 39, an entrepreneur and close friend of the Haitian president.


Conille had been Martelly's third choice for the post after the legislators voted against accepting his first two nominees.



The communiqué issued after the Inter-sessional Summit here late on Friday night, noted that the Caricom leaders had also reiterated calls for the international community to fulfil their pledges to finance the reconstruction of the French-speaking Caricom member state deva…

MEXICO CITY • Much like the late Osama bin Laden, the man the U.S. calls the world’s most powerful drug lord apparently has been hiding in plain sight.







Mexican federal police nearly nabbed Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in a coastal mansion in Los Cabos three weeks ago, barely a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with dozens of other foreign ministers in the same southern Baja peninsula resort town.





Jose Cuitlahuac Salinas, Mexico’s assistant attorney general in charge of organized crime investigations, confirmed on Sunday that there was a near miss in late February in the government’s efforts to arrest the man who has become one of the world’s top fugitives since he escaped prison …

Exclusiva AP: México casi capturó a “El Chapo” Guzmán, el jefe más poderoso del narcotráfico Publicado el 12 de mar de 2012 8:58 pm |

Foto: Reuters / Archivo MEXICO (AP) — Al igual que el fallecido Osama bin Laden, el hombre a quien Estados Unidos califica como el jefe más poderoso del narcotráfico al parecer se ha estado ocultando a plena vista. La Policía federal mexicana estuvo cerca de capturar a Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán en una mansión costera de Los Cabos hace tres semanas, un día después que la secretaria de Estado norteamericana Hillary Clinton se reunió con decenas de cancilleres en la misma ciudad turística. José Cuitláhuac Salinas, subprocurador de investigación especializada en delincuencia organizada, confirmó el domingo que estuvieron a punto de capturarlo a fines de febrero, en un esfuerzo del gobierno por arrestar a uno de los principales fugitivos del mundodesde que escapó de la cárcel en un camión de lavandería en 2001. “Sabemos que estuvo ahí”, dijo Salinas a The Ass…
