Abstract
AT this time of the year it is well to have in mind some knowledge of the broader function of nitrogen in the coffee tree as this will provide a basis for the intelligent use of this element in coffee culture.The importance of nitrogen in coffee nutrition hinges basically on its being present to a large extent in the dry matter of the protoplasm,or living substance,of plant cells.It is, therefore, required in relatively large quantities for the several growth processes which take place in coffee (i.e. leaf production,formation of buds. new wood, etc.). It follows that without an adequate supply being available. all other conditions being favourable, optimum growth of the tree cannot and will not take place.
