TITLE :

Chang, A. L. S. (2013). The Use of Wald’s Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT) in Cocoa Pod Borer Management. Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) 63:2 pp. 5–10.

DESCRIPTION :

Sequential sampling plan (SSP) has been widely used in many engineering and quality control study. The advantage of using the SSP is the sample size is not fixed in advance, but is determined in part by the results of the sampling process. The application of the SSP is not limited to the industry, it also being used in pest management. This is because the SSP are generally more cost effective than plans based on a fixed sample size. Wald's Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT) is one of the most common sequential sampling plans in insect pest management. It has been used to determine pest status at one time which could be used, through time, to monitor the status of the population and to take action when the pest density exceeded the Economic Threshold Level (ETL). Cocoa pod borer or CPB (Conopomorpha cramerella (Snell)) is a pest of concern to the cocoa growers in South-East Asia that has become one of the major factors that dampened the interest expressed in cocoa cultivation because of the heavy losses of cocoa pods due to the pest if effective control measure is not employed. The chemical control appeared to be one of the effective control measure used by the growers to control the CPB. Current practice used by the growers in applying the chemical is biweekly spraying which could see the increasing cost of chemical and labor used. The study was conducted to develop the Wald’s SPRT to monitor the CPB infestation level relative to the ETL based on counting the CPB eggs found on the pods aged 1 month before ripen or pod length 131mm to 150mm. The performance of the Wald’s SPRT was validated using independent data sets collected from Cocoa Research and Development Center (CRDC) Madai.
