The incidence of 'red-ring' in coconut plantations can be avoided by controlling the coconut weevil



The incidence of 'red-ring' in coconut plantations can be avoided by controlling the coconut weevil



Noticias Agricolas 6(32): 127-129



It is necessary to control Rhynchophorus palmarum (L.) in coconut plantations in Venezuela both because the adults are vectors of the nematode (Rhadinaphelenchus cocophilus) that causes red-ring disease (see preceding abstract) and because the larvae destroy the young growth of the palms and facilitate the entry of secondary pest organisms. It is recommended that all adults should be removed from the plantations.
