THE GROWTH OF THE CHERRY OF ROBUSTA COFFEE

I. WEIGHT CHANGES CORRELATED WITH WATER AVAILABILITY DURING DEVELOPMENT

Authors


Summary

After a period of initial growth the water content of the cherry increases considerably although that of the bean is not high during early development. Leaf reduction early in the growth period or water deficit, early or late, reduces growth. The later increase in weight of the bean is due to an increase in dry matter.
