Control of the millet head worm in the Western Sudan

Control of the millet head worm in the Western Sudan

Tropical Pest Management 34(3): 346-348, 366, 370

Methods of controlling larvae of the noctuid Raghuva albipunctella (Heliocheilus albipunctella), a serious pest of millet in Sudan, are reviewed. Long-maturing varieties and delayed planting are both effective in reducing the incidence of infestation, but are impractical in the environmental conditions of western Sudan. Varietal tolerance has been identified and is recommended as one aspect of control. Synthetic pyrethroids reduce incidence but do not significantly increase yield.
