Fewer melons for Brazil after whitefly outbreak

This article was originally published in Foodnews

MELON production in Brazil's Rio Grande do Norte and Ceará states is expected to fall 10-15% following heavy rains at the start of the year and an outbreak of the silverleaf whitefly pest. Exporters in the country are also said to be worried about the currency exchange rate since the Brazilian Real is high against the Dollar, which could hurt exports.
