Abraham Alemu


Coffee is the most important and valuable agricultural commodity in Ethiopia and also in the world by supporting the economic growth and providing job opportunity to millions of people. But, the yield and quality of  coffee significantly reduced by biotic factors(diseases, insects, weeds etc.) and a biotic factors(temperature, drought, and rain pattern). This review  paper aimed to assess the impact of antistia bug(Antestiopsis spp.) on coffee production and quality. Main topics included in this review were history and biology of antesia bug, damaging stages, specific plant parts affected by the pest (leaf, flower and flower bud, shoots and berry). Worldwide yield loss and specific yield loss both in Africa and Ethiopia were reviewed, and hence, the yield loss caused by the pest is 13% in the world and 96% in Africa respectively. The review also identified gaps and indicated future line of work.
