ABSTRACT
This investigatory project was conducted primarily to determine the effectiveness of “Sapal” in restraining bean weevil for longer storage of leguminous seeds.
Simple process was undertaken. The materials were prepared before performing the experiment. The 150 grams of mongo seeds were used as the experimental set-up and 150 grams for control set-ups. One piece of mature coconut was grated and dried, 75 grams of “Sapal” was mixed with 150 grams of mongo seed, and also with 150 grams of string bean seeds. The ratio of mixing was 2:1 seeds and “Sapal”. After mixing, it was placed in separate sieves and allowed to dry under the sun for 6 hours. Then, the experimental seeds were placed in separate jars properly labeled; likewise with the jars of the control separately placed and also properly labeled. The bottles were kept in a cabinet seed bank safe to avoid being accidentally destroyed by people and animals. The seeds were observed weekly and whatever observations noticed for a period of one month were recorded.
Result of the study showed that using “Sapal” as Weevil Repellant in Storing String Bean and Mongo Seeds is effective.
The researchers concluded that “Sapal” is an effective medium in preventing the attack of weevil on beans and mongo during storage.
