El Salvador: Coffee Annual

Commodities

El Salvador’s coffee production is expected to increase to 675,000 sixty-kg bags in Marketing Year (MY) 2018/19. Even though production increased slightly compared to the previous cycle, the Salvadoran coffee sector continues to struggle mainly due to low international prices, continued coffee leaf rust and a lack of financing. The MY2019/20 crop is expected to reach 680,000 bags. However, the Salvadoran Ministry of Environment forecasts the appearance of El Niño that could bring drought conditions unfavorable to coffee tree flowering and bean development.
