Brazilian coffee farmers have moved about a third of their crop north to Minas Gerais after a series of damaging frosts in the 1990s and 2000s. Unfortunately, that state can suffer from heat and drought, which currently appears to be the case. Aggregated Gro geospatial data indicate Minas is hotter than normal for this time of year, and both vegetation greenness (NDVI) and evapotranspiration anomalies show high levels of plant stress. These indications lend credence to industry warnings about risk to this year’s Brazil coffee crop. With hot and dry weather forecasts pushing London Robusta futures to their highest prices in a month, it will pay for coffee market players to follow the situation with data and analytics in Gro.
