Control of the cowpea weevil Callosobruchus maculatus, at the farmer level in Senegal



Control of the cowpea weevil Callosobruchus maculatus, at the farmer level in Senegal



Tropical Pest Management 32(3): 197-200, 256, 258



Treatment of stored cowpeas in the laboratory in Senegal with groundnut oil or the fumigant carbon tetrachloride failed to control Callosobruchus maculatus. Among 8 insecticides tested, pirimiphos-methyl at 10 p.p.m. gave the best results. When further tested at 12.5 p.p.m. in farmers' stores in the Sahel zone of Senegal, pirimiphos-methyl was effective for 6 months.
