Flooding to hit Vietnam’s coffee farmers

A bad year for the world’s Robusta crops looks set to get worse, with forecasts of torrential rains to hit Vietnam’s central highlands. Vietnam, the world’s largest grower of Robusta coffee, has already seen a drop in output for the year due to drought. The rains are set to hit at harvest time, adding to the woes of the nation’s coffee farmers. Robusta buyers have faced a lot of bad news this year, with dry weather affecting production in four of the major growing areas around the world – Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam and India – and unfavourable conditions also being seen in Thailand and Laos.
