West Africa Coffee Weather - Mar 23

23 Mar 2017 6:15 am
 
WORLD COFFEE PROSPECTS 
 
    Favorable conditions for developing coffee in Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais 
Brazil. 
    Generally favorable conditions for the remaining harvest in Mexico and 
Central America. Early bloom for new crop gets underway in March. 
    The main crop flowers in Colombia during March. The midcrop is developing. 
    A drier weather pattern in the coffee growing areas of central Vietnam at 
this time will favor the final harvest effort for this crop. 
    Episodes of scattered rains continue through coffee areas of southern 
Indonesia. This maintains favorable conditions for development of coffee but 
may delay seasonal fieldwork. 
    Drier, warmer weather in West Africa coffee areas during November and 
December favored the maturing crop and harvesting. The region has had some hot 
dry weather during January through March to date, however, more recently we 
have also had some shower activity move through...favoring coffee trees and 
easing the risk of damage due to seasonal Harmattan winds. 
    The southern portion of the east Africa coffee growing region has seen and 
increase in shower activity recently. This should help ease stress on the trees 
at this time. The north has turned drier and somewhat hotter.
