This report provides a very brief overview of Indonesian mango production and more specifically that of East Java. The information presented encompasses export potential, extension prospects, marketing of East Java mango and problems with extension of the mango industry in East Java. The discussion in these sections includes highlighting limitations to current mango production and identification of opportunities to expand and develop production. The report identifies East Java as having potential for further development and expansion of the mango industry in Indonesia. Provinces outside of Java with expansion opportunities are also outlined. The report identifies key areas for intervention as: government involvement in preparing complete packing houses in some production centres to handle and control fruit quality; provision of low interest credit for improved management practices; and increasing market linkages for export.
