ARS and Cooperator will gain new knowledge on previously unreported nematodes attacking the coffee berry borer. This information will be used by both parties to jointly determine if the discovered biological control agents can be used as tools against the coffee berry borer. The Cooperator will develop large-scale sampling protocols for assessing the presence of nematodes attacking the coffee berry borer.
