    Evaluation of In Situ Rain Water Harvesting as an Adaptation Strategy to Climate Change for Coffee Production in Daro Lebu District, West Hararghe, Oromia, Ethiopia
    Author(s): Gamachu Ayala*, Bayissa Muleta and Ayana Bulti

    Coffee contributes more than 60% of the annual foreign currency and 30% of the government’s direct revenue and the livelihood of 25% of the Ethiopia’s population directly or indirectly depends on the whole value chain of coffee industry. Ethiopian coffee varieties are already well-known, and in high demand by the global market. The most limiting factors to coffee production in Ethiopia are climatic variability, soil moisture stress, poor agricultural practices, prevalence of pests and diseases. The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of in-situ rain water harvesting structures on soil moisture, growth parameters, yield and quality of coffee arabica on two locations at Mechara Agricultural research on-station and Sakina kebele in Daro Lebu district, West Hararghe zone, where moisture stress and low soil fertility are limiting factors.
