CEDROS WILT OF COCONUT IN GUYANA

Since cedros wilt was identified in 1977, it has become epidemic in Guyana. In a recent survey in five of the six coconut-growing regions prevalence of the disease was determined as between 53.67. and 75% while on individual farms, the incidence ranged from 0%-40. The disease is now "notifiable" which means that the Chief Agricultural Officer has authority to implement certain control measures. The symptoms, pathogen and disease cycle for primary infection are described. The implications for the edible oil industry are discussed.
