Destructive pest threatens PNG's coffee crop


Date: 28/07/2014


Tom Kukhang from Papua-New-Guinea's (PNG) Coffee Industry Corporation and coffee growers on the island fear that a berry borer pest could have a devastating impact on the industry. The pest is reportedly just 20 kilometres from PNG's border with Indonesia and could largely destroy PNG’s coffee crop. The nation's quarantine organisation NAQIA and the Coffee Industry Corporation are currently working together to provide surveillance in border areas and major ports.
