Artemisa, Cuba - The constant rains over the northern territory of Bahía Honda keep the current coffee harvest tense, where 80 tons of the fruit must be harvested.
Carlos Humberto Fuentes Hernández, general director of the processing plant Luis Bocourt, warned that the ripening process of the grain must be accelerated after the cessation of the rainfall in addition to the effects caused by the winds of the tropical storm Eta, so they will have to accelerate the harvest with the contribution of the different productive forces of entities and organizations of the territory, taking into account that due to the COVID-19 this year the students will not be able to support the harvest.
The abundant rains in the last months, added to the gusts of winds and rains associated with Eta, forces the producers from El Cerezo to use alternatives for the harvesting of the bean due to the adverse of the land now in the massifs of the territory.
However, the producers of Bahía Honda maintain the commitment to carry out a quality harvest that contributes to the economy that the country sorely needs.
