Investing in research is essential for those who dream of guaranteeing a sustainable future, including for coffee growing.
With this is mind, we collaborated in a revolutionary research project that has sequenced the genome of Arabica coffee, making the results available for all coffee growers worldwide.
This is an important step, as it allows coffee growers to adapt to the effects of climate change.
As a result of climate change, land suitable for growing Arabica coffee could decrease by 50% by 2050, while global demand is forecasted to almost double in the same period.
The Arabica coffee genome sequencing has allowed coffee growers to adapt the plants to changing climatic conditions, including rising temperatures, prolonged drought and heavy flooding.
