ABSTRACT The coconut mite, Aceria guerreronis Keifer, has been identified
as one of the pests that pose a threat to the coconut industry in
Benin using a standard economic surplus model. The study
presents the simulation results of the economic benefits of the
biological control of coconut mites in Benin. In the least optimistic
scenario, the economy would derive an overall net-gain of
US$155,213.40. Considered at a discount rate of 12% for the
period 2008-2027, net present value was about US$207,721,
while the internal rates of return or break-even discount rates
are high at 13.21%. It is therefore recommended that contemporaneous
with the release of natural predators of the coconut
mite, plans should be underway for improving research and
extension services to coconut farmers in Benin.
