       Marex Spectrum, a global commodity broker, said on the 26th that due to the frost weather last week, some sugar cane farms in Brazil are expected to lose up to 35% of their crops, which may eventually lead to a decline in sugar production
    .
    According to the weather forecast, a new wave of cold air is expected to move over Brazil's agricultural growing areas this week, causing further damage to the
    coffee and sugarcane crops that have experienced severe frosts last week
    .
     
      CNN Brazil website reported that this will be the third cold wave experienced in the agricultural growing areas of southeastern Brazil this winter, which has not happened in recent decades
    .
    Brazil has suffered from a severe drought (one of the worst conditions in the past 90 years) and is facing logistical problems related to the export trade of important crops such as coffee

    .
    In addition, the dry weather has reduced expectations for some crops, including coffee, sugar and second-season corn

    .
     
      The frost on July 20 this year was one of the worst since 1994, and 200,000 hectares of coffee plantations have been damaged
    .
    After rising by nearly 20% last week, the value of Arabica coffee (arábica) futures continued to rise by nearly 10% this Monday (26th)

    .
     
      According to the weather forecast, the cold air will reach southern Brazil on the 28th, and will then be transferred to important growing areas in the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais on the 29th and 30th
    .
     
      Marco dos Santos, a meteorologist at Rural Clima of the Brazilian Meteorological Agency, said: "I am not sure whether the new cold current will be as strong as last week, but there is a trend towards high pressure.
    .
    .
    We cannot exclude citrus, coffee and sugar cane.
    Large areas of frost may appear in the plantation area

    .
    "
     
      Independent meteorologist Mike Palmerino pointed out: “Once (cold air) accumulates over southern Brazil, it will move slowly
    .
    This may cause frost and freezing weather in coffee-growing areas for several days

    .
     
      He added: "Dry air and high-pressure air masses with cold surfaces will maximize the impact of harmful cold weather
