Because the pandemic has several producing sectors in a state of unknown . But this is not the case: Córdoba is still the main peanut producing province.That's why the activity redoubled the bet and the averages improved compared to other years.The province is not only that of fernet and peperine, it is that of peanuts: it concentrates 90% of national production.
Manisera production is concentrated in the departments of Tercero Arriba, Juárez Celman, General San Martín, Unión and Marcos Juárez.The highlight of these is Juárez Celman . Its best known localities are General Deheza, Ucacha and La Carlota. Did you know?This part of the territory is located in the south-central of the province and contributes more than 45% of the total provincial in peanut production. That's why this industry is iconic in the area .
The process of collecting peanuts begins in June, and is made up of two stages.In the first, the plants are ripped off . This is done so that the grain starts the drying process and then the peanut is collected.That's why it's a slow harvest, which depends more than anything on the drying process. However, the numbers show that the collection is going phenomenal. This year was one of the most glorious for this agricultural sector.
According to the Córdoba Cereals Exchange (BCCBA), peanut production fell 8% compared to 2019.However , the crop 2020 had excellent yields.The harvest conditions were favorable and this caused that the losses at the time of the final harvest were lower than average . The total produced by the province (more than 90 per cent of production at the national level) was 16 per cent above the historical provincial average.The provincial yield was 45.1 quintals per hectare (qq/ha) , surpassing 36% of the historical average of the last ten years.
Peanut is not only the main snack, which accompanies the beer and makes life happy . It is also the main product of other meals, and the central factor of the Cordoba economy. That is why, obviously, every year, the National Peanut Festival is celebrated in these lands.A party that pays tribute to this crop and to all the workers of the manicured industry . It is celebrated in Hernando , a city in the Third Arriba department. Since it was declared “peanut city”.Because it is located in the Pampas plain, a region of Argentina with a great agricultural and livestock development, with soils of maximum aptitude for the cultivation of peanuts . And, as it could not be otherwise, obviously, we use these features as an excuse to celebrate.
The National Peanut Festival is one of the oldest traditions of Cordoba.In this year 2020 it would be celebrating its 65th edition.It is a symbol of cordobesity and an event that we all expect for a long time . Each edition has its special feature, as it is constantly updated to attract all kinds of audiences.Obviously, the Cordobes are always supporting the manisera production and the caravan around it.This meeting takes place in the central square of Hernando, with a huge stage where presentations and shows are made . In addition, there is always a food court offering a variety of amazing options. This courtyard is made up of several food trucks that sell regional dishes and drinks of all kinds. There is also a space for the little ones, with games and lots of fun options. In general, the opening is free and free entrance.
This year is scheduled for the weekend from Friday 13 November to Sunday 15.However, at this juncture, we will see what happens . In the case of taking place this holiday will be one of the unforgettable editions.Since the numbers and percentages are on the side of the Manisera industry.
