2018 production estimated at 53.89 million bags, but farmers warn dry weather in 2017 could yet impact yields.

 

May 21, 2018 – Brazil is set to harvest a record coffee crop this year, with state forecasting agency Conab increasing its estimate for the harvest that has been underway since early April to 58.04 million bags. Conab’s estimates are not the highest, however. Some market observers expect a crop in excess of 60 million bags.

 

 

 

 

It’s June, 2018, and the Great Artificial Drought has been broken by the slow, steady, widespread and ever-increasing distribution of simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices in the vicinity of the weather warfare infrastructure that many still mistakenly presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data.

March 1, 2018 – Honduras Record Crop Shakes Previous Coffee Forecasts

Honduras Coffee ProductionArabica production is going to be shaken up by a record harvest in Honduras, which is expected to cause changes in commodity prices.

(Production isn’t going to be “shaken up“. Production has risen to the highest level in history. – ed)

Even if analysts expected 2018 to be an off-year for Honduras coffee production, the Dutch Bank, Rabobank, after a forecast  of  6.5m 60kg bags, concerning Honduras output, has reconsidered its predictions and estimated a record high of 7.3m., as reported by the Financial Times.

(In a wonderful example of doublespeak, the best coffee harvest in the history of Honduras is said to “shake previous forecasts.” It’s one of three examples in this post of the folks in charge drastically lowballing production estimates, only to be steamrolled by the largest harvest in history – ed)

 

April 24, 2018 – Nepal on course to reap record cereal harvest

Nepal’s 2017-18 grain harvest is expected to hit a record high despite a projected fall in paddy output. According to the latest statistics of the Ministry of Agricultural Development, the country’s paddy, maize, wheat, millet, buckwheat and barley output is projected to grow 2.43 percent to 10 million tonnes this fiscal year ending mid-July.

Nepal produced 237,620 tonnes more food grain compared to the last fiscal year. “This fiscal year is ending with the largest ever food grain harvest in history,” said Yubak Dhoj GC, secretary at the ministry.

“Although the cereal acreage has been decreasing, production has swelled due to higher productivity,” he said.

(The folk in charge in Nepal project a fall, a drop, while the harvest is the highest in history. You’ll see the folks in charge in Brazil lowballing their highest-ever coffee crop, below, by 10% – ed)

 

May 21, 2018 – BRAZIL SET TO HARVEST RECORD COFFEE CROP

Brazil is set to harvest a record coffee crop this year, with state forecasting agency Conab increasing its estimate for the harvest that has been underway since early April to 58.04 million bags.

As Commerzbank Research noted, last year’s crop was only 44.97 million bags.

(They’re talking about the highest harvest numbers in history. They say “only” to imply it was small, to turn what’s happening on its head – it’s a Satanic inversion – ed)

This year, almost the same amount is expected in terms of Arabica production alone (44.33 million bags), with Robusta coffee adding another 13.71 million bags.

Conab’s estimates are not the highest, however. Some market observers expect a crop in excess of 60 million bags.

The expectation of a record crop is the main reason why the Arabica coffee price has been under pressure since last summer and fell in April to a two-year low of 115 US cents per pound. The price is trading not far off that level currently.

(As a standard protocol within the global news blackout surrounding this subject, they’ve given you the numbers, sort of, but carefully hedge by withholding the percentage increase between them. So I had to do the math. 44.97 to 58.04 is a 29% increase. Up by almost a third, in one year. You’ll notice that the State hedges again by giving the lowest estimate, and the author of the story hedges again by providing an inexact ”in excess of 60 million bags” as the top number. If we use 62 million, there, that’s a 38% percent increase (over a previous year’s harvest that was itself the highest in history). So the State’s downplaying the estimate by 10%.  – ed)

 

June 12, 2018 – Tennessee Wheat Growers Expect a Record High Yield

Tennessee farmers expect to harvest 22.5 million bushels of winter wheat during 2018 according to the Tennessee field office of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. The expected crop for 2018 would be up 17 percent from the previous year. The forecast was based on crop conditions as of June 1 and increased 4 percent from the May forecast. Growers expect a yield of 75.0 bushels per acre, up 5.0 bushels from 2017 and up 3.0  bushels from May. If realized, the yield would surpass the current record of 73.0 bushels per acre set in 2016. Farmers seeded 400,000 acres last fall with 300,000 acres to be harvested for grain.

(That’s a 7% increase in yield in one year – ed)

Acres for other uses totaled 100,000 acres and will be used as cover crop or cut as silage or hay.

Winter wheat production for the Nation was forecast at 1.20 billion bushels, up 1 percent from the May 1 forecast and down 6 percent from 2017. Based on June 1 conditions, the United States yield is forecast at 48.4 bushels per acre, up 0.3 bushels from last month and down 1.8 bushels from last year. The expected area to be harvested for grain or seed totals 24.8 million acres, down 2 percent from last year.
