Coffee Berry Borer (CBB), a damaging pest of coffee, was found on Maui in 2016 and has continued to spread to farms on the island. This beetle bores into the fruit and damages the seed, affecting coffee yield and quality. If left uncontrolled, 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 and HDOA welcomes you to join us at this informational coffee workshop for commercial farmers. Topics will include:
Coffee root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne konaensis) is found throughout the Big Island. Its presence is unknown on Maui, though this nematode can be transported via infected plant roots and soil. This workshop will teach about the basics of this nematode and how to properly sample for it.
These workshops are funded by UH-CTAHR, HDOA, the County of Maui and USDA’s Areawide Mitigation and Management for Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) Control program.
Register for this workshop is now closed.
