Caribbean Agro-climatic Bulletin of the CariSAM, August 2017

The August 2017 issue of the Caribbean Agro-climatic Bulletin of the CariSAM, a joint bulletin of the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI) and the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) is now available.

By the end of October 2017, a short-term drought situation could evolve over Haiti, due to rainfall deficits in May and June, and a long-term drought situation is possible, by the end of November in central Bahamas.

There could possibly be elevated heat stress during August to October, which would in tern affect plants, and small livestock.
