India Is The Asia's Third Largest Coffee Producer

The rise in the estimate is mainly due to the officials surveying new areas under the crop in traditional growing regions, the board said, without elaborating

Coffee output in India, Asia’s third-largest producer, is estimated to climb to a record high this year, the state-run Coffee Board said. Production may increase 12 per cent to 350,400 metric tons in 2017-18 from a year earlier, the board said on Tuesday. The figure includes 103,100 tons of Arabica and 247,300 tons of the Robusta variety.

The rise in the estimate is mainly due to the officials surveying new areas under the crop in traditional growing regions, the board said, without elaborating.

The government’s prediction compares with an estimate of 300,000 tons output in the year that started on Oct. 1, made by 
A.L.R.M. Nagappan, chairman of the coffee committee at the United Planters’ Association of Southern India, in August. Nagappan saw production falling to an eight-year low on prolonged dry weather in key growing areas.

India’s four-month rainy period, which accounts for more than 70 per cent of the country’s annual precipitation, missed a normal rain forecast this year. Showers totalled 841.3 millimetres or 95 per cent of the 50-year average in the season, according to the India Meteorological Department. A monsoon is defined as normal when rain is between 96 per cent and 104 per cent of the long-term average.
