Tomato insect pests are major constraint in tomato production in Gombe State. Therefore field studies were conducted at the Leventis Foundation/Gombe State Agricultural School, Tumu, Gombe State, Nigeria during 2015 and 2016 cropping seasons to assess the effects of planting space and weeding frequency on the infestation and damage of the major insect pests of tomato. The experiment was a 4 x 3 factorial arrangement laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications…

Effect of Plant Density and Weeding Regime on Population and Severity of Aphids (Aphis craccivora Koch) and Foliage Beetles (Ootheca mutabilis Sahl) on Cowpea in Sierra Leone

The study provides the evidence that- aphids and foliage beetles are better controlled by weeding twice at 3 and 6 WAS, and that planting at lower density has the potential to reduce the population of both foliage beetles and aphids.

Preliminary Studies on Insect Pest Incidence on Tomato in Bama, Borno State, Nigeria

Although tomato plant infestation and fruit damage were found to be moderate or high in these localities, future studies on the bionomics or population dynamics of these insects remain essential for establishing their economic status.

Impact of weeding frequency in controlling flea beetles ( Podagrica spp . ) and yield of three varieties of okra ( Abelmoschus esculentus L . Moench ) in Gombe State , Nigeria

Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) Moench) is an erect herbaceous plant and is one of the most important vegetable crops grown for its nutritional and economic value (Alao et al., 2011; Chopra et al.,

Potentials of Mitracarpus villosus (L.) and Balanites aegyptiaca (Del.) Plant Extracts and Cypermethrin in the Management of Tomato Fruitworm (Helicoverpa armigera Hubner) Damage in Maiduguri, Nigeria

Plant treatment with Cypermethrin, followed by APE of M. villosus, gave better protection of tomato fruits against H. armigera infestation and damage, but more studies will be necessary to ascertain the efficacy of these botanicals that for instance may be concentration or dose dependent.
