Will crop profitability be positive this year?
Piracicaba, 19 – Hortifruti/Cepea collaborators expect apple planting area to remain in 2018/19 season. Even so, a higher volume of production is expected since weather was good for fruit development and there can be a resumption of fuji supply.
It is worth mentioning that fruit quality also should improve this season, especially when it comes to apple size – larger sizes can benefit domestic and international commercialization. As field activities of 2018/19 season were delayed, starting for gala only in February, a lower supply of apples boosted prices in the national market early 2019.
