I mentioned the irrigation in Cerrado. The soil here (bright red, iron-rich, acidic, well-draining, lacking organic matter) needs treatment to grow coffee without being quickly depleted. Organic enrichment is used everywhere, but purely Organic coffee production would be a real challenge in Cerrado. Here you see a leaf that has been sprayed with minerals: copper, zinc, borro ... all for nutrition and pest control.
