Researchers in Kenya and Malawi will be trained in modern techniques for producing tissue culture coffee seedlings using temporary immersion methods and modern tissue culture equipment, for which laboratories will be upgraded. Nursery managers at co-operatives will be trained on weaning procedures for tissue culture seedlings. Chemistry laboratories in Malawi will be modernised to undertake pesticide and fertiliser analysis. In addition, a system for providing routine pesticide and fertiliser recommendations to farmers will be developed. Linkages between researchers, pest control product boards, agrochemical importers and producer organisations will be strengthened.
