Brazil: Rains in June may help sugarcane fields in some regions


Few regions in Brazil, which is facing its worst dry spell in 91 years, likely to get some respite after rainfall this month.

As per the news report published by Reuters, Brazilian weather forecast company Somar expects rains in the south of the centre-south region. This may bring some relief to sugarcane farmers.

According to the meteorologist Celso Oliveira the Parana, Mato Grosso do Sul and Sao Paulo have already received strong rain at the start of last week.

The other regions of the centre-south will face water shortage as the region is facing severe drought. He said that the rain will not cover all the regions of the country in June.

Brazil relies heavily on rainfall and hydro dams for irrigation of the crops and the scarcity of the rainfall will impact crop cultivation.
