YIELD LOSSES IN COCONUT DUE TO THE ERIOPHYID MITE (ERIOPHYES GUERRERONIS)

Tests were carried out on Mavpan and Malayan Dwarf coconut varieties in two ecological zones, lo assess the yield loss of copra due lo the mite. Eriophves guerreronis Keifer (Acarina: Eriophyidae). The results show a significant decline in copra output with increased mite damage (p<0.001). Total copra losses ranged from 4-5% but may be higher than 80% in the most severely damaged fruit.
