One fruit trees crops with largest amount in Mexico is the mango (Mangifera indica L.). In 2017, Guerrero was the state with the highest production in the country. However, the waste generated after harvesting represents an environmental problem caused by high production and low opportunity in the national and international markets. Nowadays, there is no environmental policy to regulate this final waste disposal. Regularly, post-harvest waste has no value and most of the time, its disposal is inadequate. The lack of training and management knowledge, separation and use, has generated an imbalance in the environment, caused by inadequate elimination practices and excessive use of pest prevention activities, known as cultural control. The main objective of this review was to know about mango production in Guerrero State, its final disposal after harvest and the environmental impact generated by cultural control use.
