Production Forecast for 2017
Rocha pear production forecast for 2017 season
Coopval expects to have a normal Rocha pear production this season.
The period of full flowering occurred in the west area during mid-April and early May, in a normal way.
Good flowering and distribution were observed among the different fruiting organs of the trees.
Efective fruit set were in general normal to good.
So although it´s still early to be sure, we expect a harvest with average sizes, and a "normal" production.
The harvest period for the Rocha variety will start between 10th and 15th August.
Gala group and Fuji production forecast
We forecast for both varieties a good season production.
There’s a significant increase in volumes also due to new areas with apples plantation that will start to go into production.
