Brazil: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BR2021-0051

The Brazilian orange crop for Marketing Year (MY) 2021/22 is forecast at 405 million 40.8-kg boxes (MBx), equal to 16.52 million metric tons (MMT), an increase of 12 percent relative to the current season. The forecast assumes normal weather conditions will prevail as of mid-December 2021 to support fruit setting and development of the second blossoming in the Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais commercial citrus belt. The current orange crop estimate in the Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais citrus belt was revised downward from 294.2 to 264 MBx (12 MMT to 10.77 MMT) as a consequence of adverse weather conditions including a severe drought and successive frosts. Total Brazilian FCOJ 65 Brix equivalent exports for MY 2021/22 are forecast at 1 MMT, similar to revised figure for MY 2020/21.
