Dear Dr. Gonzales,

 

I am a plant pathologist working on coconut diseases in Honduras and part of a world wide group of other scientists working on coconut pests and diseases and other aspects of coconut production. Honduras has lost almost 95% of  the susceptible Atlantic Tall varieties to Coconut Lethal Yellowing since 1996, but also has other serious coconut diseases like red ring nematode, and bud rot that seriously threaten coconut production. We are currently working on isolating the causal agent of the latter diseases and it does not appear to be a fungus known as Phytophtora.  I will be happy to submit information to your database.

 

You may contact me directly at the address below.

 

Best regards,

 

Maria Mercedes Roca

Subject: C I C L Y Fact List of Coconut Pest and Diseases - Inquiry

 

Good day!

 

I am Marionito Gonzales, a faculty of Leyte State University.  I am with the Computer Science Department.  Im doing an Expert System Project and the goal of this project is to build a knowledge base of cococunt information which will be beneficial to reseachers, student, and farmers in the future.  Simply, the knowledge of experts in coconut technologies are just transformed into a digital knowledge base using computer technology. I am choosing Pest and Diseases control Management of Coconut as field to be part of this knowledge base. 

 

I would like to ask for an assistance as to where I can gather such facts/expertise so I will have data to start up with my project.  I am making this one open so future studies and breakthroughs in coconut technologies could easily be injected into the knowledge base thereby widening the expert capabilities of the system.

 

I would greatly appreciate if someone can a provide me with a very comprehensive source for information on control and management of pest and diseases affecting coconuts worldwide.  A downloadable material would be excellent.  I am anticipating for somebody to help me on this regard.  Thank you and God bless.
