As I have been talking about in some market reports at the end of 2020, the harvest was one of the largest we had in ARABICA and generated a very great productive stress.... During my trip of 12,955 km , I noticed a weak weak weakening, production and huge volume of pruning. Besides the productive stress, there was also the hydric stress which, with the high temperatures during the day and during the night between September and October, damaged even more the vegetative part of the plants, as well as the sticking of Florada. It was very normal to stop in good crops and see very faulty rosettes with few fruits in each. The best crops with production are those that come from pruning and or first production and, even so, with loss of 20% of its productive potential, in my opinion. The volume of pruning was very large but easily could have been on average 15% higher due to the large volume of dry branches and very low productivity in this percentage (below 10 scs per hectare)
Tillage in the ON cycle... i.e. year of optimum productivity and no rainfall problems. Some abortions but in general the production will be very good, mainly ES and BA. Good fruit formation and full rosette guides.
