USDA Presents: Avocado Annual – 2019-2020


Avocados are one of the most important agricultural products in Mexico. They only grow year-round in one state – Michoacán – and most production occurs in small orchards. Mexico is the largest avocado exporter in the world and sends most of its supply to the U.S. where it owns more than 80% of the market share. As demand continues to grow, Mexican producers are looking to increase yields to meet that demand. To do this, producers are coordinating with the Association of Avocado Exporting Producers and Packers of Mexico (APEAM), to improve environmental conditions like healthier soils and access to water.
