Orange crop forecast update for São Paulo and SW Minas Gerais citrus belt

The second 2021-2022 orange crop forecast update for the São Paulo and West-Southwest Minas Gerais citrus belt, published on December 10, 2021, by Fundecitrus – performed in cooperation with Markestrat, FEA-RP/USP and FCAV/Unesp2 – is 264.14 million boxes of 40.8 kg (90 lb) each. With this new projection, the crop is down 1.39% from September’s forecast update and continues in a downward trend, having since May totaled a loss of 30 million boxes or 10.21% in relation to the initial expectation.

Approximately 23.46 million boxes of the total crop are expected to be produced in the Triângulo Mineiro region. Adverse climate conditions this season, including the most severe drought in almost a century and successive frosts, stunted orange growth and increased premature fruit drop. Average accumulated rainfall from May to November 2021 was 344 millimeters in the regions of the citrus belt, or 31% below the climatological normal (1981-2020), according to data from Somar/Climatempo Meteorologia.
