With Europe and Russia topping the list of export destinations, India’s seedless grape shipments are projected to reach 215,000 tonnes for 2014, with the state of Maharashtra dominating the country’s production and exports. The year’s estimate is a significant increase from the 172,000 tonnes reported in 2013, which was attributed to optimum weather during the October pruning period and improved farmer education on how to manage agricultural disasters. The total revenue from 2014’s grape exports is anticipated to exceed Rs15bn (US$240m).
