Panamanian coffee production drops

Coffee production has been dropping in the last five years due to the lack of labor, attacks by a fungus due to humidity, and the lack of improved farm management.

The president of the Special Association of Coffee in Panama, Ricardo Koyner, forecasted a production of between 10% and 20% below last year's figure due to climatic effects.

Part of the decrease in production is as a result of the sale of land that was previously used for coffee farming, and because this year the climate was not favorable for coffee production, pointed out Ricardo Duran, Market Manager at Cafe Duran.
