  • Product Description
 

As observed in this investigation, the emergence of this pest at the final stage of groundnut production posses more concern as infestation persists on the field of which the pods and kernels were destroyed, poor quality of groundnut seed (kernel) and yield also affected. The alternate host plants found in this study indicated that farmers must take cultural control practices more seriously, since fewer members of R. littoralis were found on groundnut left on the field for fewer days. Proper harvesting method should be employed to avoid high rate of post harvest loss, if groundnut will not be harvested and picked the same day. Since groundnut is mostly grown as cash crop by peasants and income from unit area is usually low, the farmers cannot afford to take up costly methods of pest control against the sucking bug. Therefore breeders should work towards breeding resistant varieties
