12/1/21: The entire orange market continues to move up in terms of cost; domestic producers are also starting to reflect the higher prices of international producers, indicating that these increases are here to stay for the foreseeable future.
11/9/21: Prices of orange juice have risen by over 30% on a month-on-month basis during September, though they have since stabilized. The recent drought in Brazil has caused a huge strain on the production of citrus; these difficulties, combined with unseasonal frosts experienced earlier in the season, have led to a nearly 10% decline in overall orange production from key growing regions. As such, prices for orange oil and its derivatives are expected to rise.
6/3/21: 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
