Abstract
The water use study in high density' coffee became a priority' after coffee intensification showed promise as a mean or increasing the crop production with apparently no increase in costs other than that of extra seedlings at the time or establishment. This study was further prompted by the fact that the water resource may be a limiting factor in the attempt to intensity coffee production by' close spacing in some environments. While water use was the main subject of this study, it was thought that close spacing might have an influence on the properties or the topsoil. This led to the incorporation of subsidiary investigations on root distribution, water infiltration rates and soil bulk density.
