This handbook has been published to help agricultural scientists and students to identify the common insect and mite pests of the sorghum crop at all stages of growth, and in storage. To create awareness about the benefit of natural enemies there is a section on the more well known predators and parasites of sorghum pests. General descriptions of the pests and color illustrations are provided to facilitate identification. There are brief descriptions of the biology, nature, and symptoms of damage together with suggested control measures. Chemical control should be applied only if really necessary, and a plant protection specialist should be consulted beforehand, if possible. It is always preferable to confirm the identity of pests with the help of professional entomologists and to collect specimens for future identification when the opportunity arises.
