Abstract
Elgon" die-back of coffee (CofJea arabica) was first described from Mount Elgon in Western Kenya (Thorold, 1935). The disease affected leaves, stipuJ.es and shoots of green stems and nodes of succulent parts of branches. Infection of leaves was particularly conspicuous at the angle where the petiole joins the lamina. Infection from the shoot tips spread to mature parts of the shoot; affected leaves and branche8 appeared as if they had been scorched by fire.
