Introduction of parasitoids of Hypothenemus hampei (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) on small coffee plantations in Colombia through farmer participatory methods development
Florida Entomologist 94 (3), 690-693
Abstract: On 57 small coffee farms in Colombia, an IPM program for CBB through participatory methods development was conducted during 2003 and 2004. As a result, increased adoption of several IPM components by coffee growers was observed. We also observed decreases in the average infestation of CBB and evidence for the establishment of 2 parasitoid species, P. nasuta and P. coffea on 12 farms employing cultural control practices for berry harvesting.
