Stories at the phenomenon of plant pathogenesis (disease improvement) were important to have a deep perception into the interactions among host plant and the pathogen. looking on the degrees of susceptibility (compatibility) or resistance (incompatibility) of the host plant and virulence of the pathogen, disorder improvement could growth, both resulting in symptom expression or lead to the suppression of pathogen proliferation.

Using an interspecific backcross between C. pseudozanguebariae (2 months FT) and C. liberica Hiern var. dewevrei de Wild (10–11 months FTs), Akaffou et al. (2003) showed that FT is an additive trait. The bimodal distribution of the full growth period suggests the involvement of Ft1, a major gene. This gradient overlaps those of caffeine and chlorogenic acid (CGA) content, suggesting that long FT could control caffeine and CGA contents in coffee beans. There is a similar relation between FT and seed weight.
