Plateau State’s untapped coffee market

Plateau's temperate and tropical weather condition makes it possible to produce all sorts of crops including exotic ones such as coffee. Coffee farmers in Plateau State believe the crop has huge potentials and when harnessed properly, could become an economic asset for the region. But this is hardly achievable because most of the farmers have to face several challenges including diseases, lack of off takers, insecurity or poor yields.
