Current status of banana pest control research in Jamaica



Current status of banana pest control research in Jamaica



Proceedings of the Caribbean Food Crops Society 1979; 15: 354-369



Nematode pests, Cosmopolites sordidus (Germ.) and various peel-scarring pests (including crickets, grasshoppers and Platynota) together cause an estimated 40% reduction in the yield of bananas in Jamaica. The results are presented of field and laboratory tests with pesticides against them. Nematodes and C. sordidus could be controlled with ethoprophos (Mocap), and pirimiphos-ethyl (Primicid) could be used in the specific control of the weevil.
