Palm plants are widely distributed in South Asia and South China. It is an important economic plant, with a unique landscape and ecological maintenance function. With the increase in trade, spread of palm pests is becoming more and more serious, such as coconut leaf beetle (Brontispalongissima)and coconut black head caterpillar (Opisinaarenosella). Against these pests,EPPI CATAS (Environment and Plant Protection Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences China Tropical Agricultural Sciences) conducted research for many, and developed IPM for Brontispalongissima, Opisinaarenosellaand other palm pests (risk analysis technology, emergency prevention and control technology, trapping techniques, natural enemies using technology). The technology system can effectively control the occurrence of pests, and has been exported to Maldives, whereBrontispalongissim was controlled using these technologies.
