The Bagé region in Brazil has seen a boost in fruit health thanks to favorable climate conditions. The Economic Information report noted a low impact of pests and impressive fruit ripeness. The harvest is now in its final stages, with peaches showing good size, color, and flavor.

Orchards that have been harvested are now undergoing green pruning, weed control, sanitary harvesting, and phytosanitary treatments. These treatments are primarily aimed at combating diseases like rust and pests such as spider mites, which thrive in the region's dry, hot climate.

However, the market is experiencing a slow flow and a decrease in demand, leading to a drop in prices.
