VIDEO: Coffee Berry Borer update

Seven extension offices of the Coffee Industry Corporation in the Highlands region have ceased recurrent programs to concentrate on containing the spread of the coffee berry borer.

Extension officers from Southern Highlands, Hela, Western Highlands, Jiwaka, Simbu, Enga and Eastern Highlands have closed all offices since February.
CIC General Manager Steven Tumae said while CIC and NAQIA are still waiting for approved funding, the CBB pest is spreading despite efforts in using internal funding sources to contain the spread.
