Modern Coffee Planting


    THE author of this book is a planter of more than fifty years' experience in the coffee districts of South India. His experience thus dates from the days when coffee was grown without shade, before the disease “Hemileia vastatrix” levied such a heavy toll on this industry in the East. The book is addressed to planters and is based on personal experience and observation. It is seldom that one has the privilege of reading a book on a particular crop written by one who has made it his life study and has at the same time earned his livelihood from it. Though written primarily for the coffee districts of South India, where coffee has been grown since the seventeenth century, the book should prove of great value to other coffee-growing countries, especially those where the industry is comparatively young. Local conditions vary from one country to another, but knowledge of a particular crop which has been acquired by experience will always prove useful elsewhere to anyone who makes an intelligent study of it.
