Occurrence - Cape St Paul Wilt has NOT been reported from Ivory Coast but in Ghana it is close to the Ivory Coast border. In September 2003 Joseph Nipah was able to "confidently confirm that the disease has not crossed the border to Cote d'Ivoire". He said that the coconut plantations in Cote d'Ivoire are over 150 km from the border, with oil palm plantations serving as a big barrier. There is no reason to expect the local West African tall variety to behave differently and it is assumed that the national plant health authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Blast and dry bud rot reported from nursery seedlings in Ivory Coast in the late 1970s and early 1980s (Dollet, 1980) were attributed to planthoppers, could be controlled by cultural methods but have not (presumably) been screened by more recent PCR techniques (amendement or addition requested).

Spread - None

Currently active areas - None

Suspected new outbreaks - None

Other palm/plant hosts

New hosts, new vectors, new strains or suspected loss of resistance - confirmed or unconfirmed

Rehabilitation/replanting programmes - it is not known to what extent potentially resistant varieties and hybrids (identified in Ghana) are being planted in Ivory Coast in anticapation of any incidence of disease (compare to Nicaragua).
