Peru state of emergency against coffee rust disease

Peru has declared a state of emergency in 11 regions against the disease, coffee rust (Hemileia vastatrix). It follows the detection of new cases in various areas across the country. The Ministry of Agriculture has issued a decree calling on growers to take appropriate measures. The emergency period will last 60 days. The affected areas include 414,000 ha of coffee. A similar state of emergency last year resulted in financial help from government including the buying up of coffee growers’ debts. A further 113 million sols ($45.7 million) are being made available this year.
