The effects of sowing date and planting method on stem borer damage in dauro millet

, : The effects of sowing date and planting method on stem borer damage in dauro millet. Annals of Applied Biology 117(3): 487-494

In field trials conducted at Samaru, Nigeria in 1983, 1984 and 1985, damage to dauro millet by the millet stem borer, Coniesta ignefusalis Hampson (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), varied between years and dates of planting. The crop was almost completely destroyed by the stem borer during 1984. Based on 1983 and 1985 data, the period between 10 July and 2 August appears to be best for planting dauro millet at Samaru for least stem borer damage while planting between 11 and 30 July appears to be optimum for grain yields. The direct sown crop suffered more dmage than the transplanted crops in all years but only in 1985 was the difference significant. There was no significant difference between slant and upright transplanting in terms of stem borer damage and grain yield. It is concluded, therefore, that the choice of planting method would depend on its convenience to the farmer.
