Coffee is one of these staple perennial crops grown in soils with low Phosphorus, and we therefore wanted to investigate adaptive techniques to obtain phosphorus by coffee genotypes. We first identified 29 Purple Acid Phosphatases genes in the C. canephora genome and five candidates with the highest potential to encode hidden PAPs and identified five candidates with higher potential to encode hidden PAPs. We discovered that C. arabica genotypes had varying degrees of phosphatase production, as well as microbial biomass carbon, which we measured in order to determine the plant's effect on microbiota and identification of the phosphatase activity source. We selected two C. arabica cultivars with differing phosphatase activity and discovered that one PAP gene expression profile matches that characteristic.
