Abstract

A study was carried out at the Makerere University Agricultural Research Institute, Kabanyolo over four cropping seasons (1990-1992) to determine the range of pests attacking pigeonpeas ( Cajanus cajan check for this species in other resources (L) Millsp.) in Uganda, and to assess their status depending on occurrence and nature of damage. Of the species identified, there were seven lepidopterans, two homopterans, three heteropterans and coleopterans, each, and one dipteran, hymenopteran, isopteran and thysonopteran insects and jassids (Homoptera), cowbugs (Heteroptera), leaf Webbers and defoliators (Lepidoptera), leaf beetles (Coleoptera) and grasshoppers (Orthoptera). Seven identified species were new records on the crop in the country. The most commonly occurring species were Aphis craccivora check for this species in other resources (Koch), Helicoverpa armigera check for this species in other resources (Hub), Maruca testulalis check for this species in other resources (Geyer), Etiella zinckenella check for this species in other resources (Treitschke), Melanogromyza chalcosoma check for this species in other resources Spencer, Tanaostigmodes cajaninae check for this species in other resources LaSalle and Clavigralla check for this species in other resources sp.
