Jaza Kamili: Njia Rahisi ya Kupunguza Uharibifu wa Fukusi katika Mbegu za Mahindi Zilizohifadhiwa katika Kontena Zisizoingiwa na hewa 2021-09-27

Hasara za Baada ya mavuno zinazosababishwa na wadudu katika nafaka zilizohifadhiwa zinawakilisha changamoto kubwa wakulima wadogo wanakabiliwa kusini mwa ulimwengu. Fukusi wa mahindi (Sitophilus zeamais) ni mmoja wa wadudu muhimu zaidi wa Baada ya mavuno katika mahindi. Na mahindi makavu yaliyohifadhiwa katika mifuko ya polypropylene iliyosokotwa, Likhayo et al. (2018) iligunduliwa kuwa wadudu (fukusi wa mahindi na mdudu mwingine wa mahindi anayeitwa mtoboa mdogo wa nafaka [Prostephanus truncatus]) walipunguza uzani wa nafaka kwa 36%. Hasara kama hizo zinatishia usalama wa chakula wa wakulima na uthabiti wa jumla wa kifedha.
