Investigation of Management of Sugarcane Moth Borers Using Synthetic Sex Pheromones


Investigation of management of sugarcane moth borers using synthetic sex pheromones


  1. To identify effective pheromone blend sources and ratios for sugarcane moth borers; Chilo sacchariphagus and Sesamia inferans
  2. To examine the relationship between moth catches and borer infestation levels
  3. To select effective and efficient trap design for trapping borer moths using pheromones
  4. To design and field test of pheromone-based surveillance and management system for Chilo sacchariphagus and Sesamia inferans
