If you are a producer I would like to get your input on the impact of the following conditions on your trees and the production potential. In the 4 months leading to flowering you register 50 % of normal rainfall. You receive 25mm of rains which set in motion the flowering yet you receive less than 20mm follow up rains spread over 30 days. After flowering the blossoms are exposed to temperatures ranging from 33 - 37 C for 12 days. Do you have any concerns with the fixation of the flowers or the pegamente? I am not a producer but to me the situation appears concerning. I appreciate your comments as someone who is involved in the production of coffee. The conditions I am quoting you are closer to reality than what IM Smith is saying in the SCASA report.
