The productivity of coffee plants in recent years has decreased very significantly, the average green bean
production is 200-300 kg/ha/yr, while the genetic potential of Arabica coffee plants can produce a production of
2-2,5 tonnes/ha/yrs. The decline in production was caused by land management that didn’t consider aspects of
sustainable land management. The high rate of land, deforestation and low levels of soil fertility is due to the use
of chemical fertilizers made from pesticides, insecticides and herbicides and not yet implementing environmentally
friendly technological innovations through the application of solid organic fertilizers, liquid soil and liquid levels.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of environmentally friendly technological innovations on the
preservation of the carrying capacity of the land and the production of coffee plants in each coffee plantation area
with different heights. The research method used is a randomized block design with 3 replications, each of which
has a different height, namely: 1600, 1200 and 750 meters above sea level. The results showed that the application of environmentally friendly technological innovations through the application of organic fertilizers made from natural ingredients in each plantation area block at different altitudes can increase land carrying capacity and
increase production by an average of 20%.
