Brazilian cassava production increase more than the demand

Brazilian production for cassava may increase in 2023, in a scenario of low demand. According to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, cassava production is expected to grow 1.3% this year, totaling 18.4 million tons, due to increases of 0.8% for the area (at 1.23 million hectares) and of 0.5% for the average productivity (at 14.9 tons per hectare).

Preliminary data from Cepea indicate that the cassava crushing at the starch industry totaled 1.8 million tons from January to August this year, 12% higher than that observed in the first eight months last year and the biggest for the period since 2016. Moreover, good weather conditions in the 2022/23 season boosted the industrial performance, which also rose 12% between January and August 2023 compared to the same period last year.
