(North-West University, 2009)
Host recognition behaviour of two braconid larval parasitoids Cotesia sesamiae and Cotesia flavipes was studied using suitable stemborer hosts [i.e. Busseola fusca for C. sesamiae, and Chilo partellus for C. flavipes] and ...
Genetic studies of Busseola fusca (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae)
(North-West University (South Africa), 2017)
Genetically modified (GM) Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Berliner (Bacillales: Bacillaceae) crops have been adopted widely in many countries around the world due to its success in reducing pest damage to crops and the ...

(North-West University, 2011)
Genetically modified (GM) cotton expressing Cry1Ac proteins was released in South Africa in 1997 for control of the bollworm complex on this crop. No reports of the failure of Bollgard® cotton to control these pests have ...
Comparative phenology of Lepidoptera on genetically modified BT- and non-BT maize
(North-West University, 2006)
The maize stem borers, Busseola fusca (Fuller) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) are economically important pests of maize in South Africa. Genetically modified Bt maize ...
