Guatemala: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

After the past three years outbreak of “coffee leaf rust”, Guatemalan farmers are starting to recover production as replanted trees and pruned ones have entered full harvest. Coffee production in marketing year 2014/15 (October 2014-September 2015) is estimated 3 percent above previous harvest; expecting 3.506 million (60 Kg) bags. Dry conditions for the past two years and more preventive and cultural controls on coffee production have increased average yields to 0.9 MT/Ha. Coffee rust is still a concern
for lowland coffee, where Robusta and Timor hybrids are replacing the Arabica’s Caturras and Catuais. Planted area has been revised up 10 percent.
