UN News Center UN survey shows stable coca production in Peru, no major shift from Colombia: "The increase was mainly due to the rehabilitation of abandoned fields in important coca growing regions like Apurimac, which produces some 30 per cent of Peru's coca. The survey notes that the increase in Apurimac was also aided by the continuing worldwide depression in the price of coffee - the region's main alternative crop. These statistics follow UNODC's recent report on Colombia, which showed a 30 per cent reduction in coca cultivation from 2001 to 2002." This info seems to bely the Sanchez article below.
