ABSTRACT

The effects of three maize varieties and two storage seasons on the population dynamics of Prostephanus truncatus and Sitophilus zeamais were observed in the traditional4Ewe’ barn on the field. Two local varieties, Dzolokpuita and Abutia and an improved variety, Abeleehi, were stored with the husk on, during the long season, and Abutia only during the short season, of the 1994/1995 storage period.
