Abstract
Coffee Berry disease is caused by a mutant pathogenic strain of Colletotrichum coffeanum Noack which has spread throughout tropical Africa from its point of origin in Kenya. Fruit is attacked in all stages. and total destruction of the crop can be caused. The disease was confined for many years to the higher altitudes. because suitable conditions of temperature and humidity were infrequent in the lower ones. Following the inception of a wetter and cooler climatic phase in E. Africa in 1961. coffee in the lower altitudes is now attacked.
