Abstract:

The oat (Avena sativa L.), is a species of cereal grain grown for human consumption as oatmeal and one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Winter fodder scarcity is one of the major problems in feeding management for ruminants in India and other country. Some of the improved fodders are introduced at farmer’s level but appropriate technology is not yet established. Moreover there is a risk of fluctuation in the production potential of such fodder due to insect pest and climatic variability across the location. Oats crops are heavily attacked by armyworm, cereal leaf beetle, cutworm, wheat aphid, plant bug, grasshopper, oat thrips, wireworm, cockchafer, fruit fly, and cyst nematode. This review endeavors to piece together all known information about the insect that attacked on oats.


Keywords: Fodder, Oats, Pest, Fluctuation, Infestation.
