Brazil Rains Seen Causing Prolonged Stoppages for Sugar Harvest

July 13, 2012

Areas in Brazil where sugar cane is grown will get high amounts of rains next week, disrupting the harvest, according to Somar Meteorologia.

After sunny days projected for today through July 15, a cold front will bring rain starting at the beginning of next week to areas near Santos and Paranagua, the Sao Paulo-based weather forecaster said.

“It is expected that a cold-front system, similar to the one recorded in June,” will bring “high cumulative rainfall and prolonged stoppage in harvesting activities,” Somar said in an e-mailed report today.
