Within the last decade, there has been an increase in attacks on sugarcane in Chad by the fungus-growing termite A. guineensis, with yield losses reaching 25%. The management of termite populations through the control of the symbiotic fungus Termitomyces medius was investigated using systemic fungicides. Following pre-screening, four products (Bavistin Calixin Erpacide, and Sumi-8 were selected for field experiments which evaluated a range of parameters.
