Abstract: The early plantation in the Pulney hills were primarily coffee. It is one of the important crop of greater commerce. Today, coffee growing has become a challenge to the organized farmers because of the scarce of the coffee berry borer. Fungal endophytes can protect coffee berry from insect pests. In this study the soil sample from the coffee fields were collected and the fungal sample were isolated. The fungal samples were used for the bioassay. The bioassay was done with different fungal culture isolated from the soil to find the lethal effect of the coffee berry borer.
