Control of potato tuber moth Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller) in rustic potato stores



Control of potato tuber moth Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller) in rustic potato stores



Tropical Science 27(3): 175-194



The results are given of extensive research carried out in rustic diffuse light stores at 2 tropical sites in Peru on the control of the gelechiid Phthorimaea operculella in potato tubers. Dried foliage of Eucalyptus globulus, Lantana camara and Minthostachys sp., both in dried shredded and powder form, were effective in controlling damage to potatoes stored for 4 months.
