China’s almond production (shelled basis) is forecast at 43,000 MT in MY 2018/19 (August-July), unchanged from the previous year, according to sources in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Almond acreage is currently estimated at around 63,000 hectares and the production base is stable. More than 95 percent of the country’s almond plantings are situated in Shache County of Xinjiang. Chinese almond production also suffers from low yields. Too many varieties are grown in Xinjiang and most orchards lack proper management and inputs. Industry sources indicate that it is difficult to source large quantities of almonds with uniform variety and quality. Almost all locally-produced almonds are consumed in Xinjiang with a very limited amount being exported to neighboring Central Asian countries.
