Max Armstrong reports on Mexico's import of avocados into the U.S. and how it has helped the market

Max Armstrong shares how the promotion of avocados from Mexico has helped build demand for domestic fruit. U.S. consumption has risen from 1 pound per person to more than 8 pounds per person today. The large Mexico crop, which was a concern at first, has turned into a benefit. Those imports are also balancing supply, and prices.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
