They were compared with conventional pseudostem traps, adoption of which has been slow. The Pitfall-cosmolure+ traps caught 18 times the number of weevils as compared to the. E.A. Frison, C.S.

Banana and plantain IPM in Cameroon: progress and problems. Fogain R., Mouliom Péfoura Alassa, Abadie Catherine, Escalant Jean-Vincent, Tomekpé Kodjo. In: Mobilizing IPM for sustainable banana production in Africa. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.

IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. Close to 48 million tonnes of banana are produced every year in Asia, making the fruit one of the most important crops in the region.

The fruit is part of the daily diet of Asians both as fresh fruit and processed delicacies, and plays an important role in the livelihoods of millions of banana growers who supply the local and export markets.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: An embarrassment of riches. Dubai, the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, is known to boast about its largesse, from having the world’s tallest skyscraper and largest mall to the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East.

So it’s no surprise that Dubai has an entire "sustainable city" development, enough LEED-certified buildings to make the world."Before the cooperative, every one worked as an individual - as a result we used to travel long distances as much as km to get agro-inputs.

Through the volunteers, we now have a modern agrodealer center. We have also acquired important technical knowledge in banana production." - .A review was undertaken of 20 documents (reports, notes, etc., collected from documentation centres, libraries, statistical and geographical services, and archives of chambers of agriculture, commerce and industry) on banana and plantain production in Benin.

The paper analyses the information so obtained on banana and plantain production systems and yields, and on production constraints.
