Increased Disease Resistance Against Rust Fungi & Greater Vigor in Coffee

Increased Disease Resistance Against Rust Fungi & Greater Vigor in Coffee

Updated May 23 



Before KPB use, the coffee trees had a strong nutritional deficiency and were negatively affected by the rust fungi. After 2 months and 4 irrigation applications with the KPB technology, the coffee trees produced more abundant foliar development and brighter green leaves than the control trees. The coffee trees that were treated with KPB no longer had any presence of rust fungi, indicating significantly increased disease resistance from KPB. With KPB use, there was also an improvement in soil pH as the soil went from a pH of 4.9 before KPB use to a pH of 5.2 after KPB use.
