Coffee Rust Impact & Solutions by Anacafé, Coffee Trade Association from Guatemala

Interesting point of View on…

coffee rust solutions, coffee rust treatments, in Guatemala where coffee growers saw their productions decrease by 40% since 2012.

The 2016 reality is that people are still researching to find new coffee rust treatments, because the solutions found so far are not effective enough.
Planting GMO rust-resistant trees has been shown to be very expensive ($1 per tree, and NO PRODUCTION for three to four years), the flavor of the specialty coffee seems to be hard to maintain with a half-Robusta/half-Arabica tree, and very often Specialty coffee growers would rather keep their old varieties and find a treatment for the coffee trees that allows them to KEEP the trees… That’s where CR-10 may be a great organic coffee rust control solution.
