Abstract:

Wild boars are present in all continents except Antarctica and greatly affect community structure and ecosystem function. Especially damage to agricultural crops like groundnut, maize, jowar etc by wild boars is enormous and widespread. Earlier the damage by wild boars was high in crop fields nearer to forest areas now they are damaging crops in roadside villages also. Among the field crops, groundnut is severely damaged by wild boars i.e. during sowing and from pod formation stage to harvesting stage. In Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh where 1.3 lakh hectares of groundnut is being cultivated during kharif, wild boars are the major havoc than any other pest in most of the areas. The present study focuses on cost economics and suitability of ITKs followed by farmers and also technologies recommended by researchers to minimize damage caused by wild boars. Generally farmers used to follow tying of sarees around field and tying of empty glass bottles along with stone/bolt which minimizes crop damage by wild boars up to 15-20%. Different methods recommended by All India Network Project on Vertebrate pest management were demonstrated by KVK, Kalikiri scientists. Among all the methods tying of 3-4 rows of GI wire was found to cost effective and better in minimizing crop damage by wild boar. During rabi, growing of safflower around groundnut field was best in minimizing crop damage by wild boars.
