IPM strategies for peanut insects in SAT Africa


The GA/IM/BF goal was the identification of the major economic pests of peanut and their relationship with  aflatoxin contamination, develop economic thresholds for these pests, and develop integrated pest management (IPM) strategies and control measures to reduce losses to these pests. The development of IPM strategies to control these insects within the socioeconomic framework of the host country will reduce this direct threat to peanut production stability.
