Interpretive Summary: Coffee production on Hawaii Island is severely limited by the Kona Coffee Root-knot Nematode. This soilborne pest damages the root systems of Arabica coffee trees resulting in stunting and declining yields. The only effective management technique for control of this nematode is by grafting Arabica coffee on nematode tolerant or resistant rootstocks. This extension bulletin provides a step by step pictorial guide that illustrates the proper procedures for grafting coffee trees. Adopting this management strategy will help to maintain healthy and productive trees throughout the life of the crop.
