Experiences with coffee-shade trees in Costa Rica



Experiences with coffee-shade trees in Costa Rica



Serie Tecnica: Informe Tecnico Centro Agronomico Tropical de Investigacion y Ensenanza (117): 166-172



Research on Coffea spp. (coffee)-shade systems in Costa Rica is briefly reviewed under the themes of characterization, wood production, Coffea production and nutrient cycling. Traditional shade species, typical tree densities and the reasons for these choices are presented.
