Coffee
RIGHT: Application of organic farm inputs (Absorber, Earthlee, Nhance) in coffee. Shows better plant development compared to LEFT (treated with standard treatment only)

Coffee trees are bush type trees that can reach up to a height of 12 feet. Their flowers are white in colour. Once a coffee orchard is established, we can expect coffee beans from them for up to 60 years. Coffee produces its beans after 4 years of planting. Coffee plants can be grown in pots and containers and even in backyards. Here are guidelines on how to apply organic farm inputs for greater yields:
