Borno,also called Yerwa or Yerwa-Maiduguri, capital and largest city of Borno state, Modern Maiduguri actually comprises the twin towns of Yerwa and Maiduguri.

benefits from cultural control Cue: Turning the soil before planting and removing weeds from the field are both examples of good farming practice. But practices like these are also a part of pest control. Turning or cultivating help to aerate ? add air spaces to - the soil and to reduce competition for water and nutrients. Getting rid of weed plants, which are often a home to pests and diseases, helps to keep a crop pest-free and healthy. These farm tasks like tillage and weeding, also known as cultural practices, are an important part of IPM,, Integrated Pest Management. Dinala Zalinga, a Crop Protection Officer in Malawi?s Ministry of Agriculture explained more about this to Excello Zidana, who began by asking him about the importance of tillage for pest control. IN:?Yes tillage is an important tool OUT:the growth of most of the cropsBiological control or biocontrol is a method of controlling pests such as insects, mites, weeds and plant diseases using other organisms. It relies on predation, parasitism, herbivory, or other natural mechanisms, but typically also involves an active human management role. It can be an important component of integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
There are three basic strategies for biological pest control: classical (importation), where a natural enemy of a pest is introduced in the hope of achieving control; inductive (augmentation), in which a large population of natural enemies are administered for quick pest control; and inoculative (conservation), in which measures are taken to maintain natural enemies through regular reestablishment.
Natural enemies of insect pests, also known as biological control agents, include predators, parasitoids, pathogens, and competitors. Biological control agents of plant diseases are most often referred to as antagonists. Biological control agents of weeds include seed predators, herbivores and plant pathogens.
