El Salvador Coffee Output to Drop After Rain, Procafe Says

El Salvador will lose 89,978 bags of coffee production because of heavy rains, Procafe, an industry group, said.

Losses may reach 239,000 bags because of high winds and road damage, Procafe said yesterday in a statement. That would mean a 17 percent drop in the harvest that was estimated to be 1.42 million bags, according to the group’s data.

A bag weighs 60 kilograms, or 132 pounds.
