瓜地馬來天災頻傳恐影響咖啡收成
« 於: 六月 02, 2010, 01:26:57 pm »


先前瓜地馬拉最負盛名咖啡林附近,發生巴卡雅火山爆發,噴出的火山灰恐堵塞排水系統。咖啡是瓜地馬拉最大農作物,暴露在火山灰風險之下使人感到憂心忡。但瓜地馬拉全國咖啡協會Anacafe尚未立即對作物受損程度提出報告。

99年5月29日熱帶風暴「艾加沙」(Agatha)在瓜地馬拉與墨西哥邊境附近的太平洋沿岸登陸,為當地帶來豪雨,造成中美洲多人喪生,預期恐對農業造成損失。
  
然而,當地咖啡農表示,熱帶風暴帶來的雨水有助於沖刷掉樹葉上的火山灰。他們樂觀地相信,農作物損害輕微。

剛剛收到瓜國咖啡協會--安娜咖啡協會的來函,目前火山爆發與暴雨的影響如下:
Anacafé Bulletin
 

Initial evaluations made by the National Coffee Association's (Anacafé) technical team due to the eruption of the Pacaya volcano and tropical storm Agatha show reports of various damages to the coffee areas, as of today, estimated at a loss of 121.924 60 kilo bags of coffee  which will cause an impact on the 2010-2011 exportable crop.

The volcanic activity that began on Thursday, May 27th, caused scattered rocks, ash, gravel and volcanic sand in the coffee areas surrounding the municipalities of San Vicente Pacaya, Amatitlán and Villa Canales. 

In San Vicente Pacaya, damaged coffee trees were found, with lacerated leaves with burned coffee cherries.  This municipality reported the most significant damage for coffee trees.

Tropical Storm Agatha caused landslides in the passageway infrastructure and internal roads that lead to the productive areas, leaving coffee municipalities of the departments of San Marcos, Quetzaltenango, Retalhuleu, Suchitepéquez, Sololá, Santa Rosa, Jutiapa, Jalapa and Las Verapaces without communication.

In addition to infrastructure damages, flooding is reported in the coffee areas of the departments of Escuintla, Chimaltenango, Sacatepéquez, Guatemala and El Progreso as well as in wet mill facilities.

The coffee production area occupies 2.5% of the Guatemalan territory, equivalent to 2.760 square kilometers.
