Geranium Oil Chinese


April 2017

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.

GERANIUM OIL CHINESE


June 2016

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.

GERANIUM OIL CHINESE


April 2016

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.
