Coffee Berry Borer, Climate Change to geographically affect production of Arabica coffee

Coffee Berry Borer, Climate Change to geographically affect production of Arabica coffee | Coffee. | Scoop.it

In a new report published Wednesday in Public library journal, PLoS ONE, scientists from the Nairobi-based Icipe, in collaboration with colleagues from the UK, US and Germany forecast that thanks to climate change, the future Arabica plantations in East Africa theoretically would need to move to higher areas despite increasing population pressure and growing food insecurity. This will be thanks to rise in the populations of the coffee berry borer, world’s most important coffee pest.
