Abstract

This two-part of publication provides a comprehensive review of the biology and management of Busseola fusca (Fuller), the African maize stalk borer. The information is presented under subheadings of pest status and crop loss assessment, taxonomic descriptions, pest biology and ecology. Pest management practices involving a range of options—cultural, plant resistance, biological, legislative, and chemical methods—are also reviewed. Part 2 contains an annotated bibliography of nearly 400 references published between 1900 and 1990.
