In the perspective of Uganda, there is a significant campaign for propagation of coffee wilt disease resistant Robusta clones (CWD-r) for mass replanting program which is seen boosting the production volumes to 4 million 60kg bags of green bean currently. And, the nation’s Vision 2040 targets 20 million 60kg bags of green bean by the year 2025 however, this can’t be sustainable without reliable Robusta markets than ever before including the $80Bn United States retail chain predominantly saturated with Arabica grades.
