    • Hi Rafael, yes the FNC has done a fantastic job all around and all the new reports of the Arabica genome mapping is very interesting, it was a huge part of the overall conference theme at ASIC just now. All this said, climate change is only going to make it more complicated for producers and there is no easy or quick fix to this.
