  Climate, Land & Agriculture:  
     
 
Climate:
Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate, with humidity averaging 84 % throughout the year. However, because of differences in latitude and the marked variety of topographical relief, the climate tends to vary considerably from place to place.
 
Annual rainfall is substantial in all regions and torrential in some, ranging from 1,200 to 3,000 millimeters (47.2 to 118.1 in). Nearly 90 % of the precipitation occurs during the summer. The average annual temperature is generally higher in the plains than in the mountains and plateaus. Temperatures range from a low of 5 C (41 F) in December and January, the coolest months, to more than 37 C (98.6 F) in April, the hottest month.    
 
The Vietnam climate is suitable for jute cultivation
