TITLE :

Alias, A. and M.T. Lee. 1998. Research on mass rearing and field release of egg parasitoid, Trichogrammatoidea bactrae fumata Nagaraja for the control of cocoa pod borer, Conopomorpha cramerella Snellen in Malaysia. Paper presented at 5 th International Symposium of Trichogramma and Other Egg Parasitoid, Cali, Colombia. 4-7 March 1998

DESCRIPTION :

The cocoa pod borer Conopomorpha cramerella Snellen or CPB is the most serious pest in Malaysia. Total crop loss can be resulted if the pest is not kept under control. Research on local egg parasitoid Trichogrammatoidea bactrae fumata Nagaraja or Tbf for the control of this pest was undertaken soon after its discovery in 1980 by the Department of Agriculture, Sabah and subsequently by the Malaysian Cocoa Board since 1992. Co-funding by the American Cocoa Research Institute for the research was initiated since 1996. The studies include the methods and condition used in the mass rearing of rice moths (Corcyra cephalonica Stainton ) for the production of eggs as alternative hosts of Tbf and multiplication and field release of Tbf with the objective aiming at the development of a reliable cost effective system in the production of sufficient egg parasitoids and their use for the control of CPB. The results indicated that inundative release of Tbf is effective for management of CPB and considerable advancement have already been made in mass rearing of rice moths and Tbf. The research progress made, the constraints encountered and the possible solutions will be highlighted for discussion.
