Abstract
Nutritional foliar sprays on coffee in Kenya are considered supplementary to ground applications of organic manures or inorganic fertilizers (Robinson, 1959).Fertilizers applied towards the end of the rains will either volatilize (ammonia) and be lost to the atmosphere, or remain on the soil surface until they are washed into the root region by rain.In such cases,the purpose of applying the fertilizers- namely for production of the desired crop or maintenance of the trees - will not have been achieved.Foliar application of nutrients would be advocated in such cases.
