The event of prolonged drought associated with excessive heat is much worse for coffee growing than a strong frost.
Note that this event is taking place in almost all Arabica producing regions in Brazil.
If it rains a lot tomorrow, the damage that has already been done does not recover, the production losses for the 2021 harvest are irreversible.
If the rains remain erroneous, the production of 2022 will also start to be affected, some say that it has already affected the production potential of 2022.
In short, the production surplus for 2020 will be insufficient to cover the 2021 losses.
World stocks of coffee in the origins and importing countries will be used during the year 2021 and the first half of 2022.
Start to research more intensively what is happening in the Arabica coffee park in Brazil, you will be scared.
The current drought is worse than in 1985, I am comparing droughts in the same period of the year, in flowering.
Let's pray that there will be no more climatic problems in this harvest that started in October 2020, because until June 2021, when the harvest will start, a lot can still happen.
Study the morphology, phenology and physiology of coffee, you can have a better understanding of the gravity of erroneous climate so far.
