Time, Honduras, July 3: Napoleon Matute, manager of the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE), said that according to data monitored by 25 telemetry stations in the country and information provided by the Office of the standing Emergency response Committee (COPECO), the dry weather caused by El Ni ñ o caused 40% less rainfall than in the same period last year, which will deal a fatal blow to the flowering period of coffee plants. This leads to poor fruit development and affects the yield of the next season.

Matute also pointed out that in addition to drought, the pest problem is also very prominent. Coffee bark beetle (Broca) is now rampant in coffee plantations. Coffee fruit beetle, also known as coffee fruit beetle, is the most destructive coffee pest in the world. it will parasitize and reproduce in coffee fruit. Newly hatched beetles will eat coffee fruit, causing it to deteriorate and rot, so it will not only reduce the overall yield, but also reduce the quality of coffee.

Under the superimposed influence of drought and pest problems, coffee production in Honduras may suffer a double whammy next season. Matute called on growers to continue to pay attention to coffee crops and said that the IHCAFE will continue to monitor the situation. The extent of the reduction and impact of coffee beans in the next season has not yet been assessed, but it is expected to cause very large losses.
