Cassava Mannihot esculenta Crantz varieties and harvesting stages influenced yield and yield related components. In Asia, our model performs well, capturing all areas mentioned as having P. Oral collar tubular ducts few, present medially or submedially only………………………………………………………………… Nipaecoccs nipae Maskell – Ventral multilocular disc pores and oral collar tubular ducts numerous, reaching thorax, present medially and in marginal zone ……………….

Nonetheless, the area projected to be at risk in South America is greater than the current known extent of P. Finally, containment involves managing the spread of invasion either by reducing dispersal, reducing population growth or a combination of both [51][56]. Winotai Mar Thailand Kamphaeng Phet In that respect, our model could be used as a tool to design a risk-based surveying program, specific in space and in time, that improves the probability of detecting nascent P. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata As a result, the plants experience reduction in their photosynthetic rate, compromised root quality.


Since that time, cassava has constituted a major food crop for more than million people in the tropical countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America Cock, In Africa, this crop is mostly cultivated as a staple by peasant farmers, whereas in Asia and South America it is also grown on a large scale for starch, fodder and fuel.
