Brazil: Citrus quality affected by winter and spring rains

The rains throughout winter and, especially, the current Brazilian spring rains, which, although many times are isolated with low intensity, are damaging the quality of citrus fruits, which have failed to achieve adequate Brix levels. Thus, according to a report by Somar Meteorology, the orange juice's quality continues to be below this crop's prospects.

Furthermore, despite the recent rains in São Paulo and Minas Gerais, the harvest continues at a normal rate for this time of year and the fruit's ripening isn't speeding things up. However, the rain affecting this crop’s fruit quality needn't mean that next harvest's fruits and plants will be compromised. Due to the regularity of the rains, soil moisture levels are satisfactory and, therefore, the ideal conditions for the tree's vegetative growth, and especially for the fruit, are given.

The orange harvest in the northern region of São Paulo and Minas Gerais will continue to be paralysed for the next five days. The absence of rain in the southern and central regions of São Paulo will allow the harvest to resume.
