Effects of clean and strip cultivation, and of mulching with grass, coffee pulp, and black plastic, on yields of intensively managed coffee in Puerto Rico



Effects of clean and strip cultivation, and of mulching with grass, coffee pulp, and black plastic, on yields of intensively managed coffee in Puerto Rico



J. Agric. Univ. P.R, 53: 124-31. bibl. 4



Mulching with coffee pulp or grass increased the soil moisture available to the trees during the dry season and sharply reduced surface soil temperatures. The treatments had no marked effect on the foliar composition of the trees. Mulching with pulp increased the yields of strip-cultivated coffee over 3 bearing years from an average of 873 to 1, 383 lb. of market coffee/acre/year, but mulching with grass or plastic did not affect yields.
