ENVIRONMENTAL COVARIATES OF ANOPHELES ARABIENSIS IN A RICE AGROECOSYSTEM IN MWEA, CENTRAL KENYA
- Environmental ScienceJournal of the American Mosquito Control Association
The influence of environmental covariates on Anopheles arabiensis mosquito abundance in the Mwea Irrigation Scheme, Central Province of Kenya, prior to implementation of a malaria vector control program was examined.
The potential of intermittent irrigation for increasing rice yields, lowering water consumption, reducing methane emissions, and controlling malaria in African rice fields.
- Biology, MedicineJournal of the American Mosquito Control Association
This method has been shown to reduce significantly the density of malaria vectors by curtailing their larval development and reduced methane emissions and water savings with at least equal yields were achieved in intermittently irrigated rice fields.
