Abstract

Cashew is an important crop. This study was carried out to evaluate the influence of cashew trees age on the damage of Zographus regalis and termites in the west of Côte d’Ivoire. These insects damages were collected in cashew orchards (class 1:] 0, 5] years), class 2:   ] 5, 10] years and class 3: ] 10, 15] years). Four plots of 1 ha per cashew orchards class were sampled monthly from 7 am to 11 am. The results showed that the damage rates were between 3% and 21%. The intensity attack on cashew trees was between 2 and 4 in the two regions of the west of Côte d’Ivoire. The damage rate and the intensity attack of Zographus regalis decrease progressively with the age of cashew orchards. However the intensity attack of termites increase progressively with the age of cashew orchards. A total of 08 species belonging to 5 genera and 5 sub-families were collected in all the study plot. In Duékoué cashew orchards, the damage rate was highest in class 3 orchards with a rate of 5.167. In the cashew orchards of Man, the highest damage rate was also observed in class 3 orchards with a rate of 2.66 in class 3 cashew orchards. The cashew trees protection with pesticides was recommended for increasing the yield and the qualities of cashew nuts.
