As it was reported by the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia (FNC), the "effects of winter in the last months of 2008, less fertilization and the renovation of coffee plantations explain the lower production of coffee in the first month of 2009."
The coffee harvest for the 2008-2009 period (which ended a month ago) declined by 15% over the previous period.
Grain producers in El Salvador warn that the harvest will be 1.1 million quintals less this year due to a range of negative factors.
The Salvadoran Foundation for Coffee Research estimates 2.71% less production for this harvest, when compared to the previous one.
The Salvadoran Foundation for Coffee Research (Procafé) has reported that 564,000 less quintals will be harvested than last year.
