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.
I must say I thought MaiCoffee was some what to negative, but driving arround and talking with farmers and techinal people in the fields. I must say, he probably is right. A lot of pruning done, more than planned due to the very poor state of the trees. Pruned areas will not produce any significant volume.
Young trees, 2 and a half and 3 and half year old witch could give 40+ bags a hectare next year have potencial yield reduced to less than 15 bags.
The only areas witch look ok are these witch were pruned last year (2019) and those with irrigation.
A more recent video:
YirgaFan, if you see the video, no potencial of the flowering will be lost here, because there ain't no flowers.
Video taken in Franca, one of the most techified coffee areas in Brasil.
