Frosts reported in several coffee, sugarcane areas in Brazil -agronomists

SAO PAULO, July 8 (Reuters) - Frosts have been reported in several agricultural areas in Brazil over the weekend, including coffee and sugarcane production regions, as an intense polar air mass sweeps through the country.

Cane, coffee and late planted winter corn are the most vulnerable crops in the South and Southeast regions in Brazil where frosts were reported. Eventual production impacts are still being assessed, agronomists said.
