Kenya: Coffee Annual

Commodities

FAS/Nairobi forecasts Kenya's coffee production will increase modestly in the marketing year (MY) 2017/2018 due to a recovery of farms from the drought conditions in MY 2016/2017, and due to better husbandry practices as farmers respond to improved market prices. The sector continues to face competition from housing developments and other enterprises in the traditional coffee growing areas. Both the national and county governments in Kenya are promoting coffee planting in non-traditional coffee growing areas to ensure Kenya’s production is sustained.
