Meteomatics Integrates Weather Data From Over 750 New Stations in Brazil
Sr. Content Marketing Manager
Brazil is a leading exporter of agricultural commodities, such as corn, sugar, orange, meat, and, of course, coffee. As weather variations have a decisive impact on crop production, the global food market is highly affected by the weather conditions in Brazil.
At this time of the year – winter season in the southern hemisphere – traders are particularly concerned about the temperatures in the country, especially in the Southeastern region of Minas Gerais, where most of Brazil’s coffee is produced.
As we’ve demonstrated in this article about coffee shortage in Brazil, although historically the region has had almost perfect conditions for coffee plants to thrive, recent trends likely associated with changing climates have affected the reliability of the coffee economy.
Exceptionally cold temperatures last year’s winter have damaged the crop, leading to a shortage which affected the supply and cost of coffee around the world.
We are thus happy to announce that we integrated over 750 Brazil weather stations data to our API.
The data from these additional weather stations improve even further our API’s output, ensuring that our partners in the agricultural trade sector have access to the most precise weather nowcasts and forecasts to understand the local weather trends and prepare for market fluctuations.
Before: Brazil weather stations data available up to July 6th 2022.
After: Brazil weather stations data available from July 7th 2022 onwards.
