Abstract
The speed of maturation of the branches of Arabica coffee, as distinguished by true bark formation, can be observed to occur more rapidly at some periods of the year than at others.Because the causal agent of coffee berry disease (the pathogenic strain of rich coffea um Noack.) is known to prolifemte in maturing bark it was considered useful to observe,in some detail,the process and rate of maturation of branches of different kinds on Arabica coffee growing at the Coffee Research Station Ruiru during a period commencing in the Short Rains 1966.For unavoidable reasons this particular project was discontinued just prior to the Short Rains, 1967, i.e. after about 9 months but the data are recorded here for comparison with the results of similar observations carried out on a more extensive scale subsequently.
