The objective of the IMFFI Key Informant Survey was to obtain estimates, across the whole of India, for the following values:- - Production of fruit fly hosts, divided among the major agro-ecological zones; - Farm-gate prices of fruit fly host produce; - Losses to fruit flies, host-by-host and zone-by-zone, both with and without fly controls; - Incidence of controls, host-by-host and zone-by-zone; - The relative incidence of the major pest species in causing losses, separately for the two categories of orchard fruit and cucurbit vegetables.
