Abstract: Coffee is an engine for Ethiopian economy. Though, its production is affected by different biotic and abiotic factors. Among these, mainly the major and minor fungal diseases like berry, leaf rust, wilt, thread blight, bacterial blight etc. diseases of coffee are the current challenges across its production areas of the country. Besides, different efforts such as cultural, resistant variety development (example of >31 Coffee berry disease resistance verities released), antagonistic bioagents identification (Trichoderma ssp.), chemical screening etc. especially for major coffee diseases are carried out. Also, the current climate change favors these diseases to be aggravated hence, future research must focus on associated factors raised due to climate change.
