  • Below-average rainfall is expected from June through July in Central America and Haiti, affecting the normal development of crops for the Primera season, especially in the already dry areas of Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Haiti. This could delay the start of the Segunda season.

  • A normal start of season in Haiti is expected the last week of April, however during the last week of June, an abnormal distribution of rainfall could affect certain areas such as Jacmel, La Vallée, Côtes de Fer, Bainet, Anse-Rouge, Baie de Henne, and Bombardopolis.

  • Above-average temperatures during the Primera season (July to September) are expected, negatively affecting soil moisture conditions and potentially having an impact on crop yields.
