Abstract
A great deal of investigation and research has been carried out in East Africa on the leaf-rust infection of Arabica coffee, Hemileia vastatrix, Berk et Br., on premature leaf fall and on the need for and application of nitrogen fertilizers. This work has led to firm recommendations for the control of leaf rust and the prevention of premature leaf fall with copper fungicides and to the application of nitrogen fertilizers in this crop. Most of this work has been carried out on research stations or on plantation-grown coffee. It is only in comparatively recent years that the results of these investigations have been examined critically in Arabica coffee grown on smallholder or peasant holdings.
