Robusta coffee is of great economic importance to Uganda. However, its production is recently impeded by the ambrosia twig borer Xylosandrus compactus. A survey was conducted in 10 randomly selected districts in the main Robusta coffee-growing regions of mid-eastern, central and mid-western Uganda to determine:
diversity, incidence and abundance of twig borers attacking C. canephora in Uganda
ambrosia fungi associated with these twig borers.
