Characterization of indigenous traditional knowledge on insect pests of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) in Northern Uganda



Characterization of indigenous traditional knowledge on insect pests of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) in Northern Uganda



Biotechnologie, Agronomie, Societe et Environnement 5(2): 105-114



In order to assess the perception of the main insect pests of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) by small farmers and to inventoriate methods traditionally used to control these insects, a survey was conducted in 41 households of Northern Uganda (Lira and Apac districts). Virtually all small farmers (95%) considered blister beetle (Mylabris spp.), which is the most conspicious insect damaging pigeonpea at the flowering stage, as the main pest of the crop.
