What will it take for people to care about climate change? For some, the thought of a crummier cup of coffee in the morning just might do it.
A new study finds that Ethiopia, the world's fifth-largest coffee producer, could lose up to 60% of its suitable farming land by the end of this century because of climate change.


On September 19, the International Research Institute for Climate and Society at Columbia University presented an update of its seasonal weather outlook, which remained somewhat unchanged from the previous month’s outlook. By this, I mean there is over 60% chance of El Niño developing over the 2018-2019 summer season. This corroborated the message shared on September 11 by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology which indicated a 50% chance of El Niño developing. 


Crop protection is a vital part of growing quality and ensuring good yields in any crop. It is necessary to provide farmers with products, experience and insights into solving the challenges faced in crop protection and plant health management. These insights would typically include the “right product or program” applied with the “right equipment” at the “right timing” considering the cost to benefit ratio at all times.


High volumes of imported oranges in the U.S. market over recent months have been reflected in market prices.

Chile, which has shipped 96% of its oranges to the North American country, saw a 13% rise in volumes this year through August to a record 74,182 metric tons (MT). This marks a significant rise from the 2015 season when just 48,470MT were exported.
