The possibilities of integrated management of shoot/capsule borer, Dichocrocis punctiferalis Guen. on cardamom



The possibilities of integrated management of shoot/capsule borer, Dichocrocis punctiferalis Guen. on cardamom



Journal of Coffee Research 17(1): 135-136



The integrated control of the pyralid Dichocrocis punctiferalis, a pest of cardamom in India, is discussed in a paper presented at a workshop on insect pest management strategies in coffee, cardamom and tea cropping systems held in India in 1986. Chemical control is unsatisfactory because it reaches only the early larval instars, correct timing of pesticide application based on adult emergence is not always possible and D. punctiferalis also attacks a number of other crops.
