“120 hectares are planned here, progressively, with 80 producers who never cultivated in places outside the traditional mountainous areas,” Estrada said.

Some 70 hectares, whose plantations accumulated a long time of exploitation and were aged, will be renewed, he also stated.

Regarding the productive behavior, Estrada argued that the drought has influenced in some way and highlighted that climate change is affecting it, with scarcer rainfall.

52 percent of the 220 hectares of coffee are of the robusta variety, he said, which is more resistant and has a better agricultural yield.
