ISHS Acta Horticulturae 341: IV International Mango Symposium

DYNAMICS AND CONTROL OF THE MANGO SEED WEEVIL

Author:   James D. Hansen
Keywords:   Cryptorhynchus mangiferae, field sanitation, quarantine
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.1993.341.46
Abstract:
Because of quarantine regulations, the mango seed weevil, Cryptorhynchus mangiferae (F.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), is a major barrier to the export of mango fruits. A brief review of its distribution, biology, and behavior is given. Field control strategies involve field sanitation, chemical application, host plant resistance, and forming pest-free zones. The development of postharvest treatments including heat, fumigation, and irradiation is reviewed and the need to further develop these technologies is discussed.
