The drought did not start yesterday, nor last month, it started in MARCH 2020. The accumulated rains from March 1st to September 27th, should have a deviation, a decrease of approximately 50% in these two regions, and the temperatures were higher, resulting in a greater evapotranspiration by the plants in this period. Thus, the coffee plants are extremely stressed, and production in the next year would already be lower due to the bienniality, but now, they will be even lower. I say that the expectation for 2021 of arabic production today is approximately 50% of what was harvested in the year 2020. As we have no rain until October 12th, I believe that the production of arabic coffees in Brazil will be affected even more.
