The Buenos Aires region starts harvesting blueberries about 10 days after Concordia, Koukoulis said.

That region is the last blueberry growing area in Argentina to come on each year, and growers there often find themselves competing with the beginning of the Chilean deal, said Mike Parr, president of Team Produce International, Miami.

“As a result, a lot of the Buenos Aires growers are finding it not economical to continue their production areas,” he said, and they are pulling out of blueberry deal.
