Coffee Plant Protection

Coffee plant protection research division should address the following core areas:

  • Identify and characterization of pest species morphologically and molecularly
  • Bio-control, botanical control and chemical control approaches
  • Screen of coffee varieties/germplasm
  • Test bio control agent against pest species
  • Evaluate the antagonistic plant extract against pest species
  • Determine the effect of pesticide on pest population
  • Survey (assessment of coffee disease and pest across different agro ecology)
  • Determine the influence of microclimate and edaphic factor on coffee pests
  • Test bio-control agent against pest species
  • Evaluate antagonistic plant extract against pest species
  • Cultural and mechanical control of pest
  • Determine the effect of pesticide on density of pest population
  • Apply integrated pest management system
