Storms pose fears for Central American coffee

Monday, June 21, 2010

Coffee producers in Central America fear heavy rains in the wake of tropical storms that could cause more damage to crops, so reducing world supply.
Guatemala, the region’s leading producer, was hit severely by tropical storm Agatha that killed 160 people and destroyed bridges and roads.
Coffee producers and exporters say that predictions of a particularly active hurricane season this year will cause excessive rainfall that blights their crop by fungus.
