Farmers' perceptions of yield losses due to insect pests and methods for assessment in pearl millet



Farmers' perceptions of yield losses due to insect pests and methods for assessment in pearl millet



International Journal of Pest Management 44(2): 123-125



On-farm surveys conducted in western Niger to establish a better understanding of millet farmers' perceptions of crop loss and methods for assessment indicated that farmers were aware of the benefits to be derived from crop loss assessment. Findings from these surveys also showed that on average 82.6% viewed crop loss assessment as important versus 17.4% who viewed loss assessment as unimportant.
