El Salvador: Coffee Annual

Commodities

El Salvador’s coffee production is expected to increase to 640,000 sixty-kg bags in Marketing Year (MY) 2017/18. Even though production increased by approximately five percent compared to the previous cycle, the Salvadoran coffee sector continues to struggle mainly due to continued coffee leaf rust, low international prices and lack of financing. The MY2018/19 crop is expected to reach 692,000 bags. Thus far the rainy season has provided adequate moisture for coffee flowering and is expected to unfold favorably for coffee bean development.
