Abstract
Lightly fertilized, shade-grown coffee does not generally respond to liming. McClelland (20) found that coffee growing on acid Catalina clay did not respond to liming, and Bonnet, Riera, and Lugo-Lopez (9) reported that shaded coffee yielding about 500 pounds of market coffee per acre also did not respond to liming on Alonso clay. Gomez, Leria, and Capo (16) found that shaded coffee growing on a soil with a pH of 5.5. to 6.0 did not respond to liming, but that growing on a nearby soil of pH4.0 to 4.5 responded to the application of up to 1 ton of limestone per acre.
