Good Agricultural Practices

Central to the future success of the coffee industry in Tanzania is the need to increase productivity per unit area or per tree, depending on the farming system and reduce costs of production. The function of this research programme therefore, is to support the national coffee rehabilitation and replanting programme through effective research in Cost-Effective and Appropriate Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition Technologies, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for major coffee pests, and Improved Plant Management Practices in different farming systems.
