To increase coffee productivity the following must be done: Robusta Coffee
1- Prune you Coffee trees by removing old branches that have grown high and are tapering.
2- Do shallow ploughing through the plantation
3- Add an already prepared manure/compost mixed with soil fertility micro-organisms
4- Mulch your coffee with elephant grass or Typhus grass
5- Make sure coffee berries ripen and are never left to over ripen or dry on the tree as this will induce senescence
6- Have a partial shade fro your coffee tree by inter planting with Albizia trees or Ficus trees
The bumper harvest shall be assured.
