Producer Extension Workshops

The National Mango Board is working with the mango organizations in the top 6 producing countries to bring our knowledge straight to you. This project is designed to:

  • Provide information to mango growers, harvesters, packers and shippers to enable them to understand how the harvesting and handling practices affects the quality and acceptability of their mangos in the marketplace
  • Demonstrate simple and practical quality control practices to ensure the highest possible product quality and safety
  • Serve as a means to publicize the release/publication and encourage use of the NMB’s Best Handling Practices Manual 
  • Reduce postharvest losses (i.e. adjustments, etc.)

Extension Workshop Videos

Research has revealed that when it comes to quality, this is a major factor that is important to consumers, along with ripeness, when deciding whether or not to purchase a mango. The NMB generates new knowledge to minimize postharvest losses through the mango supply chain in the U.S. by working with topnotch researchers.

The NMB brings this new knowledge straight to industry members at Extension Workshops. Below you will find videos of researchers who presented their research findings and recommendations on how to improve mango quality.
