In the early nineties, I was a team member on the AusAID "Coffee rust Project"project which both established the Coffee Industry Corporation and sought to eradicate coffee rust in the trees. A major part of the project involved establishing an extension service in all coffee growing areas of Papua New Guinea. The factors contributing to improved grades were widely recognized especially the importance of women in tree husbandry. From the comments in this areticle the extension service obviously lapsed with the passage of time.
