While the crop this year produced abundant flowers, many, if not all, processors are advising yields are low.

Traditionally, oil produced in April from immature flowers is sub-standard. Reports from dealers are advising just this; current offers are for poor quality oil. Pricing should stay firm until prime quality oil is available end-June, July.

One report states that high prices have encouraged more planting of Geranium in China for 2017.  A dealer estimates that 20% more acreage has been planted and that hopefully yield will be better than in 2016.  Until oil is available in July, prices will remain at their currently high level.

Pricing continues to rise as availability of oil is an issue.  New oil should reach the market in May but it is too soon to have any reliable information on crop size and yield.

Harvesting has just begun in India and the new crop should be available in March.  It is hoped that the current crop will bring Davanone levels back to normal. Pricing indications are slightly lower than those of last year.

With more and more acreage dedicated to grapes, prices have increased every month since July.  We do not foresee this trend ending anytime soon.

This year’s cultivation has been less than last years and with the harvest over in September prices continue to be firm.  Reports suggest that with no new production until May 2017 prices are expected to be firm until then.

Prices surged in late September in response to strong demand and the news from the Chinese market.  These increased prices may contribute to more cultivation next year, making this elevated pricing short-lived.

Reports continue to state that this year’s crop will be vastly reduced from last year’s .  High labor costs, disinterest of farmers, and less planted acreage have all been cited as reasons.  Prices are expected to stay firm for the remainder of 2016.

The harvest has begun but at a reported 15 kilos per day, output is small.  With preferred quality Oil not usually available until late June/early July prices are expected to stay firm.

The new crop is expected to be done in June/July.  With Egyptian Oil at half the price of Chinese, prices for this variety are expected to increase shortly.

A first hand account from a dealer visiting the Chinese growing region of Dali cites less acreage devoted to Geranium this year, as farmers have switched to more profitable crops.  This aligns with the reports of declining Oil production that we have received for the last several years.  Since the bulk of the Chinese crop becomes available in May and June we would not expect any movement in price until then.
