Abstract

Background: Nearly 50% of crop yields are lost to pests and disease, with plants and pathogens locked in an amplified co-evolutionary process of disease outbreaks. Coffee wilt disease, caused by Fusarium xylarioides, decimated coffee production in west and central Africa following its initial...

Abstract

Food security can be defined as having access to sufficient food for dietary needs and food preference. However, currently 1 in 9 people globally are estimated to be undernourished - the vast majority living in developing countries. Undernutrition causes an estimated wasting/severe wasting of 52...

Achieving sustainable cultivation of cocoa, 2018, pp 367-379
AbstractFull Text

Concerns about food safety have led many consuming markets such as the European Union (EU), USA and Japan, to enact legislation concerning accepted levels of pesticides and other harmful substances in imported commodities such as cocoa. Such legislation reduces cocoa producing countries ability to...

Abstract

In Mozambique average yields of seed cotton range from 400-750 kg/ha on smallholders' farms, while those in research plots average 3, 000 kg/ha. To improve productivity, integrated crop management (ICM) practices were promoted in cotton production systems, using farmer field schools (FFS). In...

Abstract

In August 2016, unusual symptoms were observed on cacao pods on farms in Crooked River located in the parish of Clarendon in Jamaica. Examination of affected pods and fungal spores led to a tentative diagnosis of frosty pod rot. The causal pathogen was isolated and identified as Moniliophthora...

Abstract

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a soil bacterium that forms spores containing crystals comprising one or more Cry or Cyt proteins having potential and specific insecticidal activity. Different strains of Bt produce different types of toxins, affecting a narrow taxonomic group of insects. Therefore,...

Abstract

In this chapter, we consider some of the "root-infecting" pathogens of Theobroma cacao. Despite sometimes being described as minor pathogens of the crop, they can cause serious losses locally. We have chosen to examine four pathogens - Verticillium dahliae (Verticillium wilt or sudden death), ...

Abstract

Up to 80% of global commodity production comes from smallholdings of less than 0.5 ha. Yet commodity crops may be a substantial proportion of a country's exports, and feed into global supply networks. Pest risks thus have consequences at local, national and global levels. We consider three...

Abstract

Variation of 45 Gibberella xylarioides cultures isolated from coffee trees in Africa was assessed by sequencing the partial translation elongation factor gene, by A+T rich DNA restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis and by inter-simple sequence repeat polymerase chain...
