Rafael Barbosa, food and agribusiness analyst at the bank, said in an email late on Monday that he expected rains to return to the drought-stricken coffee belt in the coming weeks, which would likely unleash widespread flowering across the coffee belt. Even so, he did not see "much room for a larger crop next year," even if rains come with regularity from now through the rest of the season."My view is that we are starting with a potential crop in 2015 at the same size of 2014 - 47 million bags," Barbosa said. "From now to the beginning of the harvest, weather will define whether it is possible - or not - to reach this potential." He went on to ...

US, Mexico near deal on sugar trade WASHINGTON: The US socked Mexican sugar imports with steep anti-dumping duties Monday, but said a new agreement with Mexico City was in the works that would eliminate any such penalties on Mexican exporters.Two months after levying 17 percent anti-subsidy duties on imported sugar from Mexico, the Department of Commerce announced additional duties of up to 47 percent for dumping sugar into the US market.All told the duties pose a potentially huge blow to the $1.1 ...
