Genza Simon is 27 years old and supports a family of 7 persons. He owns 500 coffee trees on an area of 1.5 acres and had never used fertilizer before he started participating in NKG BLOOM Uganda nine months ago.
After his successful application he received a fertilizer advance of 100 g per tree in March and 100 g per tree in August. Now it is main coffee harvest season and he estimates his coffee production per tree has tripled from 2 kg to 6 kg. That is a 200% increase in less than a year – we are impressed!
