  • The cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L) Walp) is a legume of African origin. It is source of very important nut ritional needs like protein and vitamins for the developing countries especially countries of West Africa. The attack by the Bruchinae seed‐beetle Callosobruchus maculatus (Fab) whose larvae develop in seeds causes losses ranging from 30 to over 80% of the harvest between 6 ‐7month s of storage. The objectives of this study were to identify the differ‐ ent haplotypes of the weevils’ West… CONTINUE READING
