Farmers warned against harvesting immature coffee

Coffee farmers have been cautioned against the habit of harvesting immature coffee berries and poor ways of drying ahead of the upcoming coffee harvesting season which may affect the coffee market in the country.

Scovia Bongyereire, the chairperson Rukondo-Kyarushakara coffee farmers cooperative society limited made the call during a meeting of coffee farmers held at Kitagata town council offices in Kitagata town council, Sheema district.

Bongyereire noted that some farmers have failed to use modern ways of drying coffee like the use of tarpaulins, use of drying beds but instead they dry it on the ground which she says has reduced the quality of coffee in the district.

Karakure Allan Buhanda, the Sheema District commercial officer, challenged farmers to form cooperatives so as to attract many coffee buyers.

Buhanda added that this will bring competition in the market hence bringing more money to the coffee industry.
