Pre-registered participants will receive a CBB IPM and recordkeeping binder. One binder per farm.
Although open to all coffee producers, this class is geared towards educating new and beginning farmers who have not yet attended a coffee berry borer workshop.
Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) is a damaging pest of coffee. This beetle bores into the fruit and damages the seed, thus affecting coffee yield and quality. If left unmanaged, CBB can cause over 80% cherry infestation and lead to immense damage to the Hawaii coffee industry. CBB is controlled using integrated pest management (IPM), which uses a combination of different techniques, as no single method will control CBB on its own.
UH-CTAHR welcomes you to join us at this informational workshop which will provide participants the opportunity to learn about CBB biology and the current IPM techniques. As available, a Beauveria subsidy program coordinator from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture will be on hand to talk about their subsidy program that assists coffee producers with the cost of Beauveria products.
This free event is hosted by UH-CTAHR and funded by the college and USDA’s Areawide Mitigation and Management for Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) Control program.
Online Registration is now closed.
