Abstract
Many attempts have been made to evaluate fungicides in the laboratory for their possible use against coffee berry disease. For example, during the period 1957-58, the writers (unpublished data carried out a series of screening tests with over 20 fungicides, using the reduction in germination on both agar films and on berry surfaces; the reduction in formation of appressoria; and the reduction in lesion production on berries, all over a wide range of concentrations of the fungicides used.
