Field studies on the susceptibility of six plantain cultivars to infestation by the banana weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus Germar in Ghana



Field studies on the susceptibility of six plantain cultivars to infestation by the banana weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus Germar in Ghana



Ghana Journal Of Agricultural Science: 2, 177-184



Field studies were conducted to identify plantain cultivars that were less susceptible to infestation by the banana weevil <i>C. sordidus</i> (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). Six plantain cultivars, Osoboaso, Borodewuio, Apantu-pa, Asamienu, Agbagba and Obino L'Ewai, were evaluated between October 1997 and September 1998. All the cultivars were susceptible to weevil damage in weevil oviposition, egg hatchability, and larval growth and development.
