About this book

Price collapse and oversupply have made coffee a high-profile crop in recent years: never has efficient production and crop protection been more important for reducing costs and increasing quality. Packed with illustrations, this book covers the origins, botany, agroecology and worldwide production statistics of coffee, and the insect pests, plant pathogens, nematodes and nutrient deficiencies that afflict it. With emphasis on integrated crop management, this book reviews control measures suitable for any coffee pest or disease and will enable agriculturists to design and implement sustainable pest management systems.

"After providing an enlightening historic backdrop, this 2007 work divides into sections describing insect pests and their management, diseases, and ultimately integrated crop management including IPM. The importance of shade management is addressed along with numerous other cultural aspects."--IPMnet NEWS
