After 6 months in the nursery, the coffee trees are planted in the ground. The productivity is determined by the conditions of the soil and climate of the coffee farm and is dependent upon the level of adaptation of the variety planted in the site. The number of plants per hectare and age of the plants are factors that directly affect productivity. Suitable and correct layout is a large part of the profitability of the crop as well as the sustainability of the coffee fields. Layout has direct impact on erosion: with it you can either speed up or slow down the process.
