This project aimed to quantify the extent and intensity of serious constraints and problems affecting the production of coffee and black pepper in Central Highlands in order to improve the sustainability and productivity of the farming systems and value chains of these commodities in Gia Lai, Dak Nong and Dak Lak provinces.

The project also aimed to deliver a situational analysis of on-farm coffee and black pepper production in three target provinces in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, and investigated the farming systems that rely on coffee and black pepper production and examine the distribution of soil and plant health and agronomic factors that are constraining production in the region.
