High temperatures might speed up maturation
Piracicaba, 11 th - Last week (July 31st to August 4th), tomato prices registered small oscillation in relation to the week before. In Paty do Alferes and São José de Ubá (Rio de Janeiro state) and Venda Nova do Imigrante (Espírito Santo state), high supply is not allowing an increase in prices. For this week, the forecast is high temperatures in producer regions, so maturation can be accelerated, resulting in bigger supply than the previous week.
