Cultural and management practices
- Intercropping sorghum with cowpea reduces the incidence of pod borer.
- Proper selection of beans and legumes' cultivars that are resistant to pod borers. Ask for assistance from your local agriculturist office for the availability in your area.
- Practice crop rotation. Planting non-leguminous crops every cropping season breaks the life cycle of bean pod borers.
