KONA COFFEE FARMER’S GRANT READY TO ROLL OUT
The Grant “Effective CBB Containment Tools in the Hands of Effective Users” from the HDOA (Hawaii Department of Agriculture) is in place for operation so the farmers may begin to get some assistance with the fight against CBB (Coffee Borer Beetle).
KCFA will be holding two refresher Workshops for vouchers worth 50% off the price of Botaniguard and Mycotrol gallons. The first will be Wednesday, June 11 at 3-5 p.m. and the second will be Saturday, June 14 at 1-3 p.m. Both workshops will be held at the CTHAR Building in Kainaliu. Farmers need to attend one of these to qualify for the vouchers.
Farm and Garden in Kailua-Kona and Kealakekua has partnered with KCFA on this project and that is where you bring the vouchers. KCFA is looking forward to seeing its members at the workshops and hopefully making a significant reduction in CBB infestation rates in North and South Kona for the 2014 growing season!
