Estimation of losses caused by insect and weed pests to maize crop



Estimation of losses caused by insect and weed pests to maize crop



Pakistan Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research 30(8): 622-623



The experiment was conducted to estimate the losses caused by insect and weed pests to the maize crop. The results revealed that differences in total yield of ears in various treatments were significant. The difference in average plant height, number of grains per ear, weight of grains per ear and weight per ear in different treatments were significant when compared with control. However, the difference among the treatments were non-significant. The percentage loss in ears caused by weeds, insects and weeds plus insects was found to be 18, 14, and 31% respectively.
