Abstract

This bulletin provides information and guidelines for research aimed to reduce food losses caused by insects and mites. lt is based upon the experience of grain storage scientists at ODNRI but includes many references to other workers. The guidelines should be of particular use to scientists in developing countries who undertake research on storage pest management. The short overview, which follows this preface, should assist agricultural development planners who may have opportunities to promote and support such research as a component of projects intended to increase food availability. The bulletin deals specifically with insects and mites because, in many developing countries, these pests are clearly responsible for substantial losses which could be reduced. lt relates mainly to stored food grains but also to other crop and livestock products which may be dried sufficiently for long-term storage: that is, all those which are susceptible to damage by storage insects and mites.
