Abstract

Renovating intensively managed coffee plantings by 2-step stumping, i.e., cutting back all but one vertical which is allowed to bear an additional crop before it too is cut back, resulted in higher yields of coffee, better growth of suckers, and less dieback, than did the current practice of cutting off all the tops in one operation (stumping). Stumping in March after the coffee trees had recovered from the strain of bearing a crop, resulted in better sucker growth than did stumping immediately after harvesting was completed in January.
