Abstract

Growth and yield of Coffea arabica var. 'Catuai' under two species and spacings of shade trees.

Abstract

Studies were made from 1981 to 1986 in coffee plantations in Cuba grown under two different species of shade tree, Leucaena leucocephala and Albizzia procera [Albizia procera], each at spacings of 6×8 m and 8×8 m. Data are presented on coffee growth and yield. The results indicate that performance was best under L. leucocephala shade trees at 8×8 m spacing.
