Increased drought In the country has made most farmers shift to coffee irrigation. Irrigation of coffee enables coffee plants to be supplied with Water and nutrients through fertilization for the growth of stems, branches, and production of fruits, which in turn leads to an increased rate of yields over time. Significantly, coffee irrigation reduces the growth of weeds and increases soil compactness, thus enabling the plant’s roots to grow strong.

Coffee Irrigation Farming in Kenya using Button Drippers
Button Drip irrigation is an irrigation method where plants are watered via pipes that emits water to the roots of the plants via droplets released from emitter holes drilled into the pipes.
The Water is pumped to the garden through pipes installed and fitted with valves that control the flow of Water. Water flow is normally slow to ensure enough water goes to the soil.
The irrigation system focuses on supplying Water to the main parts of the coffee plant roots by allowing water droplets through the 4 mm holes to the base of the plant.
