BOTANY

Crop improvement is central to the future of the coffee industry.  The division of Botany hence is the cynosure and holds the key to the sustained economic growth of the industry. Much as some of the released varieties have been performing exceedingly well under different agro-climatic conditions, efforts continue to evolve genotypes tailor made to suit the changing situations in general and region in particular.  Biometrics, Horticulture and Seed multiplication which initially were projects have become full fledged line of study. In essence the aim is at varietal improvement in coffee for better resistance to leaf rust, higher productivity, superior quality and wide adaptability.
