Abstract
Some components of resistance of C. arabica to C. kahawae were assessed by inoculating detached berries and seedlings of sill cultivars with 2 x 10' conidia ml-1. Conidial germination and appressorial formation on epidermal walls of susceptible cultivars occurred within 4 h of inoculation compared to 30 h after inoculation on a resistant cultivar. A high percentage of appressorial formation was noted on epidermal was of susceptible cultivars within 24 h of inoculation. Conidial germination and appressorial formation was greatly inhibited on epidermal walls
