ANNEX 1:

DESCRIPTION OF INTENDED RESEARCH

NORTH SUMATRA COFFEE FORUM (NSCF) has activity to develop Coffee Berry Borer Resistance Variety (CBBRV) through coffee breeding program.  CBBRV is an urgent need to ensure the sustainable production and quality of coffee. CBB is the most destructive pest in the world, Indonesia and North Sumatra. Hence, CBBRV must be created through breeding program. Initially two research programs will be initiated:


1. Research Program 1
In populations of coffee plants that were severe attacked by CBB in 9 regencies (Kabupaten), Sabam Malau found some plants that are higher resistant significantly to CBB in comparison to the plants next to it. These findings were in his CBB survey on November-December 2010. His hypothesis is: those resistances are due to genetic factors. Natural genetic mutation can be the cause of those new genotypes. If this hypothesis is then proven true, then those plants will be sources of seeds of resistant plants to CBB. We need to do research. Potential genotypes from several regencies of North Sumatra Province will be selected and collected. These genotypes will be tested in field trials at Volkopi’s Station at Paratusan/Sigumpar in Lintong, Humbang Hasundutan Regency, North Sumatra, Indonesia.

 2. Research Program 2

New genotype such as resistant genotypes can be created through conventional breeding in which 2 different genotypes will be crossed. The broader the genetic differences are, the higher the possibilities to find resistant genotypes. Volkopi has the potential parental genotypes at Paratusan/Sigumpar Station. We need to do breeding research. Potential parents will be crossed reciprocally at Paratusan/Sigumpar Station, and then selection and field trials on the progenies will be conducted.
