 ABSTRACT

Agriculture is the backbone of the national economy of Nepal. A survey shows coffee consumption has grown up to 384 MT in 2010 from 156 MT in 2006 (CoPP, 2010). Witnessing the increase in area and production of coffee and its economic importance a study was carried out with the objective to study the growth trend in area, production and yield of coffee in Nepal. The specific study was based on secondary data collected for a period of 1994-95 to 2015-16 in Nepal. The growth trend analysis for area under coffee recommends that it was increasing with a compound growth rate of 43 per cent per annum during overall period of study. The growth trend analysis for coffee production Nepal was found positive growth and it was rising with a compound growth rate of 16.8 per cent per annum during over all study period. Growth of coffee yield was expanding with a compound growth rate of 2.3 per cent per annum. There is need to enhance the area under production and productivity of coffee.

Key words: Coffee, Area, Production, Productivity, Compound annual growth rate.
