Abstract
The amount of starch in branches of Coffea Arabica L. was studies by means of a method of visual scoring. In cropping branches the variation in starch level was greatly but not completely determined by the growth of the crop. More knowledge of the formation and distribution of the products of photosynthesis is needed before a satisfactorily explanation can be offered. Starch levels in non-cropping branches were higher than those in the cropping branches, but followed the same pattern of fluctuation. In general, translocation of starch occurred rapidly throughout the tree but some exceptions to this rule were found.
