The situation at orange juice market can be estimated from the last report of US Ministry of Agriculture, which unfortunately is issued for this product only in January and July. Besides, the production forecast for the next 2011/2012 season was not represented in the last (July) report.
Nevertheless, the market condition can be more or less characterized by current data. Thus: the production has been reconsidered in comparison with January towards rising and amounts to 2.313 mln. metric tones, which is by 118 ths. more than it was declared in January and almost by 400 ths. more in comparison with the previous season.
