We appreciate this effort by NASS to ask for and consider the suggestions of coffee farmers.
We encourage you to review the two attached surveys, a click to view>> USDA.NASSGrower 2014-2015 and a click to view>> USDA.NASSCOFFEEMILLERSFINALREPORT_HI-6_1_2015 and email your suggestions and comments to Ms. King email: [email protected] .
One point worth noting: in the “Grower Survey” we are asked to identify the district in which our farms are located. However, the annual data released by NASS gives only statewide statistics. We believe that publication of district-by-district data would provide much more useful information to Kona growers.
