Control of the sorghum stem borer, Busseola fusca, by partial burning of the stalks



Control of the sorghum stem borer, Busseola fusca, by partial burning of the stalks



Tropical Pest Management 26(2): 113-117



Different methods of dealing with sorghum stalks after harvest were surveyed in Nigeria. The recommended practices of burning stalks completely after the grain has been harvested or spreading them thinly in the field throughout the dry season to kill diapausing larvae of Busseola fusca (Fuller) were not followed by farmers. Over 95% of farmers kept their stalks in stacks, sometimes in the shade. This allowed the survival of larvae inside the stalks.
