Major rain in mid April of up to ten times the normal amount, has affected Chile's harvest of their main walnut variety: Chandler which was 20% being harvest when rain hit. This could affect up to 35,000 - 40,000 tons and is expected to result in a decrease in total production and a drop in quality for 2016.
