  • In Senegal, as in most neighbouring Sahelian states, corn is one of the major food crops and its promotion is one of the basic objectives of food security defined in most countries. While food security means producing enough by promoting new seed varieties, it also involves storage of this production. The post-harvest component was then wrongly little considered in Senegal. Thus Sitophilus spp. causes losses ranging from 25 to 40% in farmers’ stocks. However, their biology and physiology are… CONTINUE READING
