SCA Sustainability Center continues the series on the economic sustainability of coffee production with two webinars that highlight a major global trial investigating coffee farming profitability from World Coffee Research. The webinars will take place on May 21 at 7am PDT / 2pm GMT and May 23 at 9am PDT / 4pm GMT.
In an era of low prices, the trial produces unprecedented knowledge about what approaches to farming are profitable globally. Almost everywhere we go, we find that coffee farmers are shouldering all the risk in coffee production because there is little information on the best varieties and agricultural practices, no access to the right plants, or not enough knowledge on how to prepare for the next drought or epidemic. Because of these seemingly simple barriers, many farmers that could be profitable aren’t.
World Coffee Research, together with dozens of partners, is building an unprecedented network of global on-farm trials to discover which varieties and agricultural practices are most profitable for coffee producers around the world.
The Global Coffee Monitoring Program addresses one of the most important decisions farmers make: Which plants and practices are right for my farm? For my climate? For my buyers? We’ll explore the platform’s aim to use rigorous, on-farm science to create a global data set that addresses the profitability of coffee farming from the ground up.
