SANTOS-VILLALOBOS, Sergio de los et al. Critical aspects on the integral management of mango: flowering, anthracnosis and industrial waste. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2011, vol.2, n.2, pp. 221-234. ISSN 2007-0934.
At world level, Mexico is located as an important participant in fresh mango production and trade, standing out as producer (2*106 t year-1) and exporter (2*105 t year-1) of mango and importer of minimum quantities with regard to its production and export. The economic activity around mango, is integrated by a group of stages that goes from fruit production to its consumption, which has been called value chain of mango; with base in scientific and empiric knowledge in relation to this cultivation, the critical points of more impact on this value chain in Mexico that we have detected, with negative repercussions for the economy of fruit farmers, are located in stages: production (flowering and anthracnosis) and industrialization (use of vegetable residuals generated in fresh mango process of industrialization). This revision presents a global analysis of stages that put in risk to this value chain in Mexico, as well as the causes and possible solutions to these, by means of alternatives that optimize its integral handling.
