Soil pests of groundnut in West Africa - species diversity, damage and estimation of yield losses



Soil pests of groundnut in West Africa - species diversity, damage and estimation of yield losses



Insect Science and its Application 19(2-3): 131-140



Among the major arthropods in soil and plant samples taken from groundnut farms during the 1996 cropping season in Mali, Burkina-Faso, Niger, and Nigeria, termites in the genus Microtermes (Isoptera: Termitidae) were the most abundant and widely distributed species of economic importance. None of the termite species identified on trees in the surveyed farms attacked groundnuts.
