Plantation coffee

Plantation coffee is grown on large commercial farms, private as well as state farms. It is a growing trend in Ethiopia, and uses highly intensified agronomy practices: pruning, mulching and organic fertilizing, stumping, integrated weed and pest management, well-regulated shade and plant density. It plants high-yielder seedlings and disease resistance varieties. Many medium and large state farms exist in Southwestern Ethiopia, especially Jimma, Bench Maji and Kafa Zone.
