Abstract
Coffee is Kenya's major export crop and an important source of the foreign exchange needed for planned economic development. Also, coffee is a major domestic industry. Kenya has signed the International Coffee Agreement and now faces a limit on the amount of coffee which sbe may export to traditional markets, but production is likely to exceed export quotas and domestic demand in the foreseeable future. Therefore, coffee output will have to be reduced. But, any reduction in output must be based on an ability to identify the higher cost producers within the industry
