1. Handling, centring and de-suckering. In marginal areas, centring should be minimised in Arabica to avoid exposure of main stem so as to minimise the risk of stem borer attack.
2. Black Rot:
In black rot affected plants, removal and destruction of black rot affected twigs, leaves etc. should be done followed by drenching spray with Bavistin 50 WP @ 0.03% (Carbendazim 120g per barrel) during the break in rains.
3. Sash weeding.
4. Planting including supply planting- weather permitting.
5. Removal and burning of shot-hole borer infested twigs.
Aftercare of seedlings.
7. Berry Borer:
If berry borer is noticed, spot sprays with Beauveria bassiana may be taken up.
