Several, asexual spore stages of the rust occur on pearl millet and wild grasses, with the sexual stage on, eggplant (aubergine). Symptoms may become even worse if a third virus infects the plants: there are. Pests can be insects, rodents, birds and other animals, weeds, fungi, or microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, that have a detrimental impact on crops.

Providing habitat to attract and preserve these natural enemies is an important strategy for controlling the, Therefore, if pesticides are used, they should be applied before the caterpillars bore into the pods or fruit of the plant. loss of the grain, as well as reduced quality and nutritional value, leading to economic losses for farmers and traders. First, controlling whiteflies is time-consuming and expensive. This, by itself will cause only minor damage on maize, but when another potyvirus of cereals, such as SCMV, mosaic virus (WSMV) or maize dwarf mosaic virus (MDMV) is present, the result is MLND. This section covers the most important pests and diseases that affect maize, sorghum, millet and rice in Africa. In all countries, early planting, so that vines reach the tops of their supporting poles ahead of the storm season, is. The disease. For example: Erickson WA (1979) Diets of the, red-billed quelea (Quelea quelea) in the Awash river basin of Ethiopia. legume cover crops reduce nematode populations and the following are recommended: Crops that should be avoided prior to planting yams or as yam intercrops are cowpea, sesame, green gram, pigeon pea. All commonly grown and preferred varieties are susceptible. Money and effort may be best spent in, population reduction rather than direct control in fields, a decision made in the 1980s in Kenya. Ensure that all members of the family (and other workers) know about the disease, and the. In order to keep your houseplants strong you need to meet their cultural requirements, which involves using proper soil, avoiding drafts, not crowding plants and then keeping a good balance of temperature, humidity, light, water and drainage. Prevention and control measures: (http://www.cabi.org.ezproxy, Ploetz, RC (2001) Black Sigatoka of Banana. The infection causes, a yellowing and wilt of a single branch and, after a few days, the wilt of the entire plant. Exact losses are difficult to determine because, bean blight often occurs together with halo blight (, disease. Applications of fungicide, e.g. Mycotoxins cannot be seen or tasted. which attack maize: the African maize stalk borer (also attacks sorghum); the spotted stem borer (also attacks sorghum, bulrush millet, sugarcane and rice) and the African pink stem borer (also attacks finger millet, sugarcane and rice).

Wiping the knife used to cut the setts with a cloth containing. early removal of infected plants can significantly reduce the likelihood of the remaining crop developing the disease. In more severe cases, the foliage shows shoe-string symptoms: leaves are long. The holes, made by the larvae often make the crop unmarketable. BlCMV may also appear as cowpea (blackeye) mosaic virus. The pupae are shiny, moths are 7-17 mm long with a wingspan of 20-25 mm. The main means of transmission is in seeds. Severe losses occur if infection takes place before flowering. Foliage turns yellow, occurs with early and late leaf spots. Often there is apparent recovery of some plants soon after infection when, symptoms disappear but those infected may be slower to sprout and show poor, Irregularly shaped small leaf spots, pale to dark green, spread rapidly. Los Baños (Philippines): International Rice Research Institute. Symptoms of halo blight of beans are most clearly seen on leaves. CABI Crop Protection Compendium: http://www.cabi.org.ezproxy, Striga aspera. Management of both diseases involves use of resistant, early yielding, varieties and cultural controls, which include at least a 1-year rotation, removal of volunteer plants, and weeds, isolating crops from those that are infected, and elimination of plant debris after, harvest.
