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 new and beginning coffee farmers or those seeking a refresher, to join us at this informational CBB 101 workshop which will provide participants the opportunity to learn about CBB biology and current IPM techniques. The Hawaii Department of Agriculture Beauveria subsidy program coordinator 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.
If you register and are unable to make the workshop, please contact Gina at 808-322-4892 or Matt at email@example.com as soon as possible. There may be a wait list and we would like to provide someone else with the opportunity to attend.
