India's coffee output pegged at record 3.5 LT in 2017-18: Coffee Board

The production of coffee in India is projected to be at record 3.50 lakh tonnes (LT) in the 2017-18 marketing year on account of higher acreage. Of the total output of 3.50 LT, the Coffee Board estimates 1.03 LT of Arabica and 2.47 LT of Robusta varieties. Higher output is mainly attributed to the additional bearing area of about 13,500 hectare in traditional growing areas of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Coffee output in Karnataka - the country's leading producer - is pegged at 2.51 LT in 2017-18 as against 2.21 LT last year, while the production in Kerala, mainly a Robusta producer, is estimated to be higher by 8.31% at 68,520 tonnes this year as against 63,265 tonnes last year.

Further, in Tamil Nadu, the production is projected to go up by 17.29% to 19,160 tonnes from 16,335 tonnes in the said period. In non-traditional areas of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha as well as in North Eastern Region, coffee output is pegged at 10,960 tonnes in 2017-18 as against final output of 10,655 tonnes last year.
