Producer: Magwila AMCOS
There are 59 smallholder farmers who each deliver small quantities of cherries to the AMCOS, or to collection centers in nearby villages. The average farm size for producers delivering to the Magwila washing station (Ilomba) is half to two hectares. These mid-land dry farms have clay loam soil and are organic by default. Organic compost is starting to become more common, pruning less common. A farmer can typically have fewer than 1000 trees per hectare, and one tree typically produces a quantity of cherries equal to less than 100 - 200 grams of green coffee.
