Résumé

L'efficacite des insecticides communement disponibles dans la lutte contre les insectes terebrants des tiges du mais a ete evaluee dans la presente etude. L'application de l'insecticide a influence l'existence et l'importance des degets causes par les insectes terebrants sur le mais. Au cours des premiers stades de developpment de la culture, la plus faible incidence de l'insecte terebrant a ete enregistree sur les parcelles traitees avec du furadan, bien que son efficacite ait diminue avec le temps. Dans l'ensemble, les traitements avec du sevin ont produit un meilleur control par rapport a d'autres traitements. Une application granulaire du sevin mieux chronometree conviendrait mieux dans le systeme integre de la gestion de l'insecte terebrant et reduisait les pertes de la productivite du mais causees par ces pestes.

Abstract

Evaluation was made of the efficacy of commonly available insecticides for control of stemborers on maize. Insecticide application influenced the occurrence and extent of stemborer damage on maize. In the early stages of crop development, the lowest stemborer incidence was recorded on Furadan treated plots, although its efficacy decreased with time. Overall, Sevin treatments effected better control compared to other treatments. A well timed granular application of Sevin could fit well in the integrated stemborer management system and reduce maize yield losses caused by these pests.
