Given the economic significance of the Malagasy lychee industry, both domestically and internationally, stakeholders, including farmers and exporters, closely monitor weather conditions and crop forecasts. The fruit is not only highly valued in the local market but is also a crucial source of income for Madagascar through exports.

The success of the lychee season is pivotal for Madagascar’s agricultural industry, and efforts should be directed towards ensuring a smooth operation for the benefit of all involved.
