Abstract
The practical control of coffee leaf rust is often not satisfactory. Existing practice of timed sprays with 50 per cent copper wettable powders, while effecting large increases in yield, does not give good control of the rust pathogen. The reasons for this are several, and include problems of application and timing, but it is reasonable to assume that some at least may be overcome by improved active ingredient or formulation of the fungicide.
