Abstract
A study has been made of the cultural conditions in the field that influence the yield of peasant-grown Arabica coffee on Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. Coffee yields per unit urea were found to be positively related to: - (i) the rising altitudes on the mountain slopes. (ii) The closer spacing of the coffee trees. And (iii) to a small extent with increase in the density 'of interplanted bananas. No significant relationship was found between yield and the age of the coffee tree once they were in bearing. Yield was not related to the original trial site classification to the presence 'Or absence of interplanted yams or to the number of shade trees present in the coffee.
