A new method for determining yield losses caused by damage to the heads of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.) due to diseases and pests



A new method for determining yield losses caused by damage to the heads of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.) due to diseases and pests



Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkrankheiten und Pflanzenschutz 100(5): 522-529



A simple field method for determining yield losses in P. glaucum in Niger was developed during 1989-91 as a starting point for early warning and integrated pest management systems. The method focuses on observations made on the ripe heads shortly before harvest. The percentage of damage is determined with the aid of estimation tables and assigned to different causes, the most important of which are listed. Further information is gained by questioning individual farmers.
