Roots came from two consecutive weeks of discharge
Piracicaba, 24 - The supply of carrots in the region of São Gotardo (MG) increased this week (20 to 24/08) by pressing prices, after two consecutive weeks of discharge. The 29 kg box of "dirty" carrots sold for R $ 22.67, on average, down 9.3%. The volume of roots harvested was higher due to the intensification of the harvest of the winter varieties in the square. With a favorable production climate, the yield is high and this week reached 79 t / ha.
Despite the good quality of the roots, the expectation for the coming weeks is not encouraging to the producers, since the supply can increase even more. In addition, employees of Hortifruti / Cepea say that sales are not good - customers are buying in smaller quantities, resulting in the accumulation of carrots in the crops. The smallest output is due to the end of the month, the period in which it is commonly sold less.
