Effect of Cropping Systems on Cereal Stemborers in the Cool-Wet and Semi-Arid Ecozones of the Amhara Region of Ethiopia.
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2007)
1 Field experiments were conducted on maize and 1 sorghum at three locations in the Amhara state of Ethiopia to determine the effects of mixed cropping on stemborer infestation, borer natural enemies and grain yields. In ...
On-farm evaluation of the ‘push–pull’ technology for the control of stemborers and striga weed on maize in western Kenya
(Elsevier Inc., 2008-03)
The ‘push–pull’ technology is a novel pest management strategy developed for control of stemborers and striga weed, Striga hermonthica, in maize-based farming systems in eastern Africa, where maize is intercropped with ...
Evaluation of farmers' field days as a dissemination tool for push-pull technology in Western Kenya
(Elsevier Ltd, 2009-03)
Our earlier study on farmers' adoption of ‘Push-pull’ technology (PPT) for management of cereal stemborers and Striga weed showed that field days (FDs) could be effective in technology dissemination. Hence, in an effort ...
Intraspecific and Interspecific Competition Between Cotesia flavipes and Cotesia sesamiae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Gregarious Larval Endoparasitoids of Lepidopteran Stemborers
(Taylor & Francis, 2002)
Super and multiple parasitism of Chilo partellus (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) and Sesamia calamistis (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) by Cotesia flavipes Cameron and Cotesia sesamiae (Cameron) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) were investigated ...
Integration of edible beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) into the push–pull technology developed for stemborer and Striga control in maize-based cropping systems
(Elsevier Ltd, 2009-11)
Smallholder farming systems in eastern Africa are characterized by cereal/edible legume intercrops in fields severely constrained by parasitic weed, Striga hermonthica, cereal stemborers and declining soil fertility. The ...
