Unwanted Christmas Guests
released on 12/16/2014
According to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture (HDOA), the coffee berry borer (CBB) has now been found on O‘ahu—until now, the only place it was in Hawai‘i was the Big Island. CBB, one of the most devastating coffee pests, was first detected in Kona in Sept. 2010 and in Ka‘u in May 2011. Find out more about the borer here. Coffee growers in non-infested areas are encouraged to be vigilant and report any suspected CBB infestations to HDOA’s Plant Pest Control Branch on O‘ahu at 973-9522 or by email at hdoa.ppc@hawaii.gov. Also spreading across the Islands is basil downy mildew. First discovered in 2011, the pest has sparked a chain reaction of support from CTAHR researchers Miaoying Tian (pictured) and Janice Uchida (both PEPS) and PEPS graduate student Mark Dragich, as well as Jay Bost from GoFarm Hawai‘i, LCC undergraduates, HDOA, and the organic seed company Vitalis. This research, extension, and instruction collaboration is evidence of the mission of the land-grant university at work, and more such collaboration will be needed to face this new spread!
