Production of coffee is expected to go up by 9% to 3.47 LT in 2013-14

The production of coffee in the country is expected to increase by 9.05% to 3.47 lakh tonnes (LT) in the year 2013-14, as per report compiled by the Coffee Board. This expectation is on account of normal blossom showers in all major coffee growing areas. The final crop estimate based on crop harvest data for 2012-13 year is placed at 3.18 LT. The production of Arabica variety is expected to increase by 12.88% to 1.11 LT for the current year, while production of Robusta is expected to go up by 7.47% to 2.36 LT in 2013-14 year.

The three major coffee producing states Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu account for 98% of the total output. The production in state of Karnataka is estimated to increase by 8.21% to 2.49 (LT); in Kerala it is expected to increase by 9.89% to 70,550 tonnes and in Tamil Nadu it is expected to increase by 10.10% to 1,755 tonnes, compared to the previous 2012-13 season's final estimate.

For the year 2013-14, coffee production from non-traditional areas of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa and North Eastern Region is expected to go up by 28.57% to 1,780 tonnes from the final estimate of production in 2012-13.
