Special Issue on Insect Pests of Jatropha curcas and their Control in Burkina Faso


The increasing interest on the potentials of jatropha has encouraged growers to venture into commercial farming. However, this expansion would require more rigid management strategies. As production of tree-seeds basically depends on cultural practices, one of the problems that farmers usually encounter in wide-scale jatropha plantations is insect pest management.


In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring insect pests of jatropha curcas and their control in Burkina Faso. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Agricultural entomology
  • Pest bio-control
  • Chemical protection of plants


Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Insect Pests of Jatropha Curcas and their Control in Burkina Faso” should be selected during your submission.
