Abstract

Thirty-one pests have been listed to cause variable damage to maize under field and storage conditions. Under field conditions, the crop is damaged by soil dwellers, foliage feeders, stem borers, flower feeders and cob feeders. Under storage conditions, maize grains suffer heavy loss due to rice weevil, khapra beetle, lesser grain borer and angoumois grain moth. Rats are menace under poor storage conditions. Management strategies for different pests are discussed.
