Patchy Pre-Monsoon Rains May Pare India Coffee Output, Exports

April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Patchy pre-monsoon showers in some parts of Indias main coffee-growing regions may hurt the crop this year, state-owned Coffee Board said, likely paring sales from Asias third-biggest producer.

Rainfall over the southern states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu was not consistent and uniform, said G.V. Krishna Rau, chairman of the board. The agency will announce its post- blossom forecast by the middle of May, he said in an interview.
