    Arabica coffee manual for Myanmar 2005
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Coffee is now an important industry in Myanmar. Currently there are 35 500 acres planted. With a very suitable climate, abundant land resources and farmers who are eager for a viable cash crop, the country has the potential to grow large amounts of high quality Arabica coffee. Myanmar has identified over 200 000 acres with soils, altitude and climate for producing Premium and Speciality Arabica coffee. This Arabica coffee manual for Myanmar is an activity under a FAO Technical Cooperatio n Program coffee project for Myanmar and has been prepared as a support base for training trainers and staff of the Coffee Research Information Extension and Training Centre (CRIETC) of Myanmar Farm Enterprises (MFE) of Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation at Pyin Oo Lwin. The manual provides key information through consistent technical messages essential for high quality coffee production, processing and marketing and is intended to be a primary source of practical knowledge on Good Agri cultural Practices (GAP). This manual is produced as a basis for training extension personnel and farmers in growing and processing coffee. It is also a valuable resource for researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and policy-makers.

    Value Chain Analyses for Shan Tea and Arabica Coffee under Climate Change in the Northern Mountainous Region of Viet Nam 2015
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This brief summarizes the results of analyses of Shan tea and Arabica coffee value chains in the Northern Mountainous Region of Viet Nam in order to better understand how they are affected by climate change and their potential to be climate smart. It provides highlights from the larger studies that can help shape sectoral development plans within a climate-smart agriculture (CSA) framework to sustainably improve the food security and resilience of the population dependent on these sectors, while capturing any potential mitigation co-benefits. The evidence base will also contribute to the formulation of sub-national and national CSA frameworks and financing mechanisms for agricultural development in Viet Nam.

    Special R&D report on the FAO-Viet Nam coffee project 2006

    Coffee quality improvement and Ochratoxin A (OTA) prevention are key issues for Viet Nam. With an annual production of around 800 000 MT of green bean coffee per year, Viet Nam is now the biggest producer and exporter of Robusta coffee in the world. No country, and especially Viet Nam, can afford to have coffee rejected by the world market for OTA contamination. Currently, Vietnamese coffee is discounted by approximately US$30/MT, as it is generally perceived by the world market to be of lower q uality. The challenge then, is to assure the world market that higher quality coffee can be produced that is free of OTA contamination. Wet weather at drying time, limited drying areas and slow drying, along with improper storage have been recognised as major contributors to lower quality coffee that is likely to be contaminated with OTA. Inexpensive, simple semi-wash/demucilaging technologies with enhanced rapid drying by smallholders has been shown to produce higher quality Robusta coff ee, therefore attracting greatly improved prices of US$160/MT more on the world market. This publication reports on some key outcomes of an FAO project "Improvement of Coffee Quality and Prevention of Mould Formation and Ochratoxin A (OTA) Contamination of Coffee in Viet Nam" and provides greater insight into on-farm issues as well as reporting on practical findings and R&D initiatives.
