El Salvador: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   ES2024-0002
El Salvador's coffee production is expected to reach 555,000 sixty-kg-bags in marketing year (MY) 2023/24. The Salvadoran coffee sector continues to be affected by climate vulnerability and an absent long-term strategy. The MY2024/25 crop is forecast to reach 560,000 sixty-kg-bags. Lack of labor availability due to migration in rural areas is affecting farm activities such as pruning, tree renovations, and berry picking and processing. In addition, prices for inputs remain high, increasing production costs. The Government of El Salvador (GOES) continues to carry-out a coffee plant give-away program, however most plants are not planted by farmers due to lack of the financial resources to cover this cost.
