Coffee Board to strengthen research

Our Bureau Bangalore | Updated on July 02, 2014

The Coffee Board has taken steps to include growers associations, eminent growers, and experts in the field of agriculture to strengthen coffee research at its Central Coffee Research Institute.

The research programmes of the CCRI are formulated once in five years and take into account the requirement of the industry at the beginning of each Plan. This was necessary as the changing requirements are not incorporated into the research programmes as there is no structured platform for regular interaction interface between the researchers and the stakeholders.

Jawaid Akhtar, Chairman, Coffee Board, said, “Now to cater to the changing requirements of the coffee plantation sector, we have formed regional consultative forums (RCFs).”

“The RCFs will be co-ordinated by the research station concerned in that region. Four RCFs have been constituted, two for Karnataka state and one each for Kerala and Tamil Nadu,” he said.
