Brazil bracing for frost losses of wheat and coffee

Apparently Parana and nearby states (most of the wheat grown) may be hit tonight. . Theoretically a bad frost could jump Brazil past Egypt and China for top importer of wheat this year.

 

The screw turns.

The wheat is in the jointing stage, so it will have to get colder than the usual frost to do much damage.

Nothing personal, but suggesting wheat was going to be so hurt Brazil would become a big importer

is off the wall.

 

BRAZIL is HUGE,   strawberries in teh Adrondaicks get frosted, effect on NYstate strawberries, zero. etc.
