What is the best way of Planting Coffee?
Plant coffee plants 2 to 4 weeks after the onset of the rainy season. Roots protruding beyond the polythene pots should be trimmed before planting. Open up the center of the filled holes sufficiently to fit the size of the potted plant. Remove the polythene pots. Carefully loosen caked soil around the roots to ease water uptake and root development. Place the plant in the hole with collar at the level with the surrounding soil or slightly higher to allow for some sinking when soil settles. Water the seedling before and immediately after planting. Regularly inspect the planted field to identify dead plants and replace them as soon as possible. Protect each seedling from sunshine by providing shades.
