Resumen:
Un instituto de investigación francés ha desarrollado una solución rentable para la lucha contra la broca del café (importante plaga del café) que garantice una producción libre de residuos de pesticidas. Esta solución también garantiza una mayor productividad (de un 10% a un 16%) y, sobre todo, reduce los costes a medio plazo si se compara con los tratamientos con insecticidas. Se buscan industrias y laboratorios de control biológico en el sector de café y cacao con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia o cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Efficient and environmental-friendly trap for coffee pest: the coffee berry borer
Summary:
A French research institute has developed an economic environmentally solution to fight against the coffee berry borer (a major pest of coffee), ensuring a coffee production free from pesticides residues. This enables also higher weight yields, and overall lower costs compared to insecticide treatment. Industries and biocontrol laboratories of the coffee & cocoa sector are sought for license or technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
The coffee berry borer is a major pest of coffee; the traditional control methods being limited. A French research institute proposes an economic environmentally solution.
The conventional insecticides uses have limitations:
- The risk of toxic residues
- The lack of selectivity of insecticides which kills natural enemies of the beetle
- Resistance for coffee berry borer to insecticides
Thanks to a design adapted trap, tailored to the biology of the insect and its powerful attractant mixture, this trap effectively fights against this pest; ensuring a coffee production free from pesticide residues.
The sector of the coffee / cocoa production is concerned: coffee cultures, production and distribution. Industries and laboratories are sought such as producers, cooperative, biocontrol laboratories; for license or technical cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
- The weight yields of commercial coffee increases from 10 to 16%
- High efficiency: up to 10 000 beetles per trap per day
- Very selective trapping 97% of captured insects are beetles of coffee
- Lower doses of pesticides
- In the medium term, the cost is lower compared to insecticide treatment
