Review of Operations

During the third quarter of 2021, Harvest achieved a total sales volume of 46,166 tonnes of its KP Fértil(R), representing a 165% increase over the sales realized in the same period of 2020, and despite the challenges imposed by the pandemic. The total accumulated sales in the first nine months of the year achieved 74,159 tonnes compared to 37,906 tonnes for the January - September period in 2020. Such sales performance accounts for 93% of the total sales target budgeted for the entire 2021.

The extensive marketing campaign launched in May 2021 for coffee, sugarcane and other crops, along with an effective schedule of production have been the key catalysts to boost KP Fértil(R) sales performance. Sales of the higher margin 25kg bag option initiated in June 2021, targeting small to medium sized farmers and resellers, have also started to contribute to the overall performance. New and ongoing marketing activities have focused on placement of our KP Fértil(R) in other regions beyond our immediate market in Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo
