Ivory Coast, the world’s top cocoa producer, and Ghana, the second-biggest, will get rain at least through June 13, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. Prices gained for the fifth time in six sessions. “Showers have been reported in most parts of West Africa in recent days, and some think the current rains will delay harvest and could hurt quality as drying the beans becomes harder,” Jack Scoville, a vice president at Price Futures Group in Chicago, said in a report. Cocoa for September delivery climbed 0.9 percent to $2,205 a metric ton at 10:44 a.m. on ICE Futures in New York. Earlier, the price reached $2,230, the highest for a most-active contract since May 22. In London, cocoa futures gained on NYSE Liffe in London. Cotton futures for December delivery slid 1.2 percent to 69.03 cents a pound in New York.
