Samples of four differently processed cassava chips of two varieties were analysed for their chemical contents. Thereafter, they were infested with adults of Prostephanus truncatus at temperature of 25-34°C and relative humidity of 61-92% and studied for their susceptibility to pest in storage. The processed chips differed in their overall chemical contents and their responses to P. truncatus attack were significantly different (P<0.05). The beetles performance and overall development was high…

Correlation of Chemical Compositions of Cassava Varieties to Their Resistance to Prostephanus truncatus Horn (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae)
TLDR
The resistance to high damage in the resistant varieties was conferred by secondary metabolites such as tannins, saponins, alkaloids, and hydrocyanic acid content.
Effects of Larger grain borer Prostephanus truncatus (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) on nutrient content of dried staple roots and tubers
TLDR
The findings of this study show that LGB is a serious threat to stored roots and tubers and to food security and the nutritional value of root and tuber crops was adversely affected by infestation of LGB in storage.
Nutritional and toxicological composition analysis of selected cassava processed products
Cassava ( Manihot esculanta Crantz) is an important food source in tropical countries where it can withstand environmentally stressed conditions. Cassava and its processed products have a high demand
Responses of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst.) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) to Coloured Polyethylene Films in Storage of Musa Chips
TLDR
There were significant differences amongst the three Musa species on the survival, progeny production and damage caused by T. castaneum on chips stored in various coloured polyethylene bags.
Integration of Pyrethroid Insecticides Combined With Host Plant Resistance in the Management of the Larger Grain Borer, Prostephanus Truncatus (Horn) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae), OnStored Maize, Zea Mays L.
TLDR
Results obtained from the treatment of susceptible varieties with the pyrethroid demonstrate the attractive potentials of Bifenthrin and Deltamethrin against the larger grain borer.
Efficacy of Three Protectants, Primiphos Methyl, Piper guineense and Eugenia aromatica , against Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera Tenebrionidae) on Stored Chips of Three Musa spp
TLDR
Results revealed that actellic (Primiphos methyl) had significantly (p < 0.05) higher mortality effect on adult T. castaneum than the other protectants, and Chips treated with 2g cloves had significantly lower percentage loss and lower rate of damage than all the protectants but its effects was similar to that ofActellic.
Screening of Ten Maize Varieties, Zea Mays (L.) For Resistance Against Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) from Different Zones of Nigeria and Ghana
3 Abstract: Ten maize varieties, Zea mays, eight from International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan and two from local market in Enugu, Nigeria were screened for resistance to
Management of Dinoderus porcellus L. (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) infesting yam chips using varietal resistance and botanical powders of three medicinal plants
TLDR
Combination of resistant yam chips with leaves powder of these three medicinal plants could be promoted for integrated management of D. porcellus progeny.
Varietal diversity and processing effects on the biochemical composition, cyanogenic glucoside potential (HCNp) and appearance of cassava flours from South-Eastern African region
TLDR
The results showed that the different processing techniques had only minimal but significant effects on the starch and sugar content of the different cassava varieties, which have implications for the preference and adoption ofCassava varieties where the colour of the flour is deemed to be important for the preparation of preferred dishes.

TLDR
Caffeine content was, bowever, significantly reduced in kolanurs that were hetvily infested with weevils, especially in the red cultivar, which showed significant decreases in the amount of caffeine with increasing levels of infestation.
