HARC is associated with numerous trending technologies including; incorporation of Beauveria bassiana into the IPM plan for control of CBB. Hawaii’s impressive 849‧43 Kg-Ha yield of green bean (USDA-NASS Report 2020/2021), comparative to Kenya’s 302 Kg-Ha (www.ico.org: ICC 124th Session, 2019. Country Coffee Profile: Kenya) and, Rwanda’s 385.71 Kg-Ha (Coffee Production in the Face of Climate Change: Rwanda); in the Arabica value chain thus, quite phenomenon and intriguing scenario for AFRICA to learn from.
