Basis of host recognition by the larval endoparasitoids : Cotesia sesamiae Cameron and Cotesia flavipes (Cameron) (Hymenoptera : Braconidae)
(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 ...
Efficacy of selected insecticides for control of stem borers in maize
(North-West University (South Africa), Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
Lepidopteran stem borers are important pests of cereal crops in sub-Saharan Africa. The stem borer species Busseola fusca, Chilo partellus and Sesamia calamistis are the most widespread and important stem borer species, ...
Efficacy of Bacillus thuringiensis spray applications for control of lepidopteran pests
Organic insecticides play a big role in reducing the usage of chemical insecticides and their negative impact on the environment. Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) spays are the only tool that organic farmers are allowed to use ...
The effect of water volume and dosage rate on the efficacy of Break-Thru S240 for stem borer control
(North-West University, 2008)
The two most prominent stem borer species responsible for damage to maize in South Africa are the African maize stem borer, Busseola fusca (Fuller) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and spotted stem borer, Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) ...
Ecology of maize stemborers in irrigated subsistence farming systems in the Limpopo Province
(North-West University, 2006)
Stemborer ecology in South Africa has been studied well but largely in maize in commercial monoculture production systems. Stemborers are important pests of maize in resource-poor farming systems at the Tshiombo irrigation ...
