This project aimed to follow up new opportunities for the promotion of the pheromone and botanical technologies to cowpea farmers in West Africa, which had been researched and developed under earlier projects R7441 and R8300. They included exploring routes to commercialisation and using new data on pheromone blends to initiate trap use in other major cowpea producing countries in the region. The project also sought to disseminate previous research findings.
