La Nina Weather May Continue Until End-November, Malaysia Says

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- La Nina weather conditions may continue in Malaysia until the end of November, the Meteorological Department said. There should be “normal” rainfall in most states, though it’s likely to be above average in Sabah, the government said in a report today.

“The amount of rainfall basically should be enough for agricultural activities such as palm oil,” it said. “This abundant rainfall may cause prolonged soil saturation that will affect crop growth or yields for rice, palm oil, cocoa, especially over low-lying areas.”
