Título Arabica coffee manual for Myanmar
Sumario Coffee is now an important industry in Myanmar. Currently there are 35 500 acres planted. With a very suitable climate, abundant land resources and farmers who are eager for a viable cash crop, the country has the potential to grow large amounts of high quality Arabica coffee. Myanmar has identified over 200 000 acres with soils, altitude and climate for producing Premium and Speciality Arabica coffee. This Arabica coffee manual for Myanmar is an activity under a FAO Technical Cooperation Program coffee project for Myanmar and has been prepared as a support base for training trainers and staff of the Coffee Research Information Extension and Training Centre (CRIETC) of Myanmar Farm Enterprises (MFE) of Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation at Pyin Oo Lwin. The manual provides key information through consistent technical messages essential for high quality coffee production, processing and marketing and is intended to be a primary source of practical knowledge on Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). This manual is produced as a basis for training extension personnel and farmers in growing and processing coffee. It is also a valuable resource for researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and policy-makers.
