Only one of the most important producing countries can maintain its volume at a stable level. News from Bolivia's rainforests: Brazil's walnut harvest this year has declined by 60-70%, mainly due to El Niño. Bolivia produces approximately half of the world's supply and reports that the capsules are empty. Trees aren't producing this year, which also means that communities that make a living harvesting this nutritious nut are likely to suffer.
Bolivian authorities are planning new strategies to counter shortages due to this overwhelming drought, such as cutting vines around Brazil chestnut trees in the native rainforest, which could triple the yield of individual trees. There are several reasons why Brazil nuts have become more difficult to find on the market than they were a few years ago. After the “catastrophic harvest” in the Amazon rainforest, there has been a drastic reduction in Brazil's nut supply. The lack of rain in South America due to El Niño also caused Brazil nut pods to fall ahead of time, causing fewer seeds to germinate and turn into trees.
In addition, due to the drop in Brazil nut production in recent years, cutting down a Brazil nut tree has been banned in Brazil. Market participants expect prices to remain stable for now, as limited supply is also currently met by limited demand. Commodities are unlikely to fall any further, as they are already too low. However, factories cannot survive these price levels, so they would prefer to stop selling Brazil nuts.
It is anticipated that some of the sellers will remain inactive rather than trading at a loss. Brazil nuts are in short supply this winter and warnings have been issued that the crop faces long-term problems due to intensive agriculture. Amazon walnuts (Bertholletia excelsa), also known as Brazil nuts, are the fruit of an arboreal species native to the highest elevations of the Amazon rainforest. Brazil nuts, for example, contain very high amounts of selenium (68—91 mcg per nut) and can cause you to exceed the upper limit if you eat too much.
Eating Brazil nuts can reduce inflammation, support brain function, and improve thyroid function and heart health. This year, Brazil nut season lasted only from February to March and produced 12,000 tons of walnut a quarter of the usual harvest. Research initiated by Dr. Carlos Pérez of the University of East Anglia believes that to avoid an eventual collapse of the Brazil nut industry, there must be careful monitoring and careful management to encourage the growth of younger trees.
Brazil nut, an increasingly popular product, is also under pressure under the same rule in a few months. A nut not included in the study, Brazil nut, contains high levels of selenium, which can also help increase testosterone levels, vital to improving sexual desire. Legislation introduced in July means that all imported Brazil nuts must be tested in their country of origin and certified to say that they contain less than four milligrams of toxin per kilogram of nuts. Consuming two to three Brazil nuts a day is unlikely to pose a health risk; however, eating 50 or more nuts a day can cause radiation toxicity.
