Could come out 50% higher compared to 2021

Banana production Santa Catarina recovering

Santa Catarina should increase banana production by 50% in 2022, compared to the previous year, according to the Center for Socioeconomics and Agricultural Planning (Epagri/Cepa). The center estimates a production of 725.800 tons against 480.700 thousand tons in 2021. One of the factors that leveraged this growth was the recovery plan for  banana plantations in Santa Catarina affected by the cyclone bomb in 2020 . SC is the fourth largest banana producer in the country, responsible for 10% of the national production and the second in average productivity.

“The banana growers managed to readjust the affected areas using the programs of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development, with the contribution of resources from Pronaf via access to funding and investment credit, with interest rates of 2.75% for the affected municipalities and with a decree of emergency situation or state of public calamity because of the cyclone”, says Rogério Goulart Junior, socio-economic analyst at Epagri/Cepa.
