Research on the pests of food-crops in the Sahel: the case of grasshoppers



Research on the pests of food-crops in the Sahel: the case of grasshoppers



Agonomie Tropicale 36(2): 178-184



As well as the catastrophic but temporary outbreaks of locusts (such as Schistocerca gregaria (Forsk.) and Locusta migratoria migratorioides (R. & F.)), grasshoppers constitute a permanent problem for growers of food crops (especially millet, sorghum, rice and maize) in the whole Sudan-Sahel region of West Africa.
