Abstract
About 95% of the food materials of a plant are derived from carbohydrates manufactured in the green parts by the process of photosynthesis.The remainder consists of mineral elements absorbed by the roots.Large regular yields of coffee can be obtained only when both the carbohydrate and mineral nutrient supplies Within the trees are adequate to meet the needs of both the developing crop of fruit, and the shoots and roots which will support the following year's crop. This article describes the major findings and practical implications of some of the past and present research at the Coffee Research Station, Ruiru, on important seasonal changes that occur in the amount of carbohydrate foods manufactured by the leaves.
