Brazilian coffee production, including arabica and canephora species, is expected to total 3.4 million tons, or 56.1 million 60-kg bags, an increase of 14.4% compared to 2021, according to data from the Systematic Survey. of Agricultural Production for March, released this Thursday, 7th, by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE). In comparison with the February forecast, there was an increase of 0.9%.
The average yield should be 1,824 kg/ha, 13.5% higher than in 2021.
“This increase should be even greater. This crop is being hampered by unfavorable weather conditions. Coffee prices soared in the international market”, observed Carlos Alfredo Guedes, IBGE research manager.
According to him, in February, Arabica coffee reached a record price of R$ 1,400 per 60 kg bag. “The price has already dropped a little bit, but it remains quite high,” he declared.
Arabica coffee production is estimated at 2.3 million tonnes in 2022, or 38.7 million 60 kg bags, an increase of 20.9% over the previous year. In comparison with the February projection, there was an increase of 0.6%.
The IBGE recalls that 2022 is a positive biennial year for the Arabica coffee crop, “which should result in a significant increase in production, although the dry and excessively cold climate of winter 2021, including the occurrence of frosts in some producing regions, may have reduced the expected production potential”.
Canephora coffee, better known as conilon, or robusta, should total 1.0 million tons in 2022, or 17.4 million bags of 60 kg, up 2.3% compared to 2021. there was an increase of 1.7%.
