3/16/21: Fundecitrus first Brazilian orange crop forecast from May 27, 2021 has come in; indicates a total of 294.17 million boxes for the 2021/2022 crop season. This represents a 9.51% increase vs. previous crop year of 268.63 million boxes, though the increase still is lower than average for Brazil, if you look at the past 10 seasons (-10.53%).
This means the crop will mainly depend on the first and second bloom for this season, as the 3rd and 4th bloom the fruit is smaller with fewer yields. It is expected that this year’s yield will be better than the last. Drop rate of fruit is estimated at 6-7%, mainly due to the increasing prevalence of greening and drought effects.
Fundecitrus forecast is based on mapping all citrus farms in Brazil every 3 years; next one is scheduled for August 2021

Description of Orange Essence Oil
Unlike all other types of orange oil, Orange Essence Oil is extracted from the juices of sweet oranges, rather than their peels. This process creates an incredibly intense sweetness, with a zesty tang that heavily resembles the fruit’s own flesh. This juicy oil is used for a variety of orange-flavored products, from soft drinks to sherbet to hard candies. Its intense citrusy odor also makes it a staple of old-fashioned colognes and male perfumes, as the fruity nuance of its sweetness pairs exceptionally well with more aldehydic ingredients.
