Farmers in the Ejura Sekyedumase District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana were interviewed to determine the type of crops they cultivate in the district, the type of pest on their field, the control measures they are putting in place to reduce the pest populations and the effectiveness of the control measures. This research was conducted in order to determine the type of pests affecting the major staple crops in Ghana and suggest sustainable ways to control the pests. Furthermore, the farmers were also trained on the various pest scouting techniques and how to determine the pest population on their field which will guide them to know whether the pest population has reached the economic threshold or the economic injury level. Farmers in the above-mentioned district can now determine the appropriate time to control pest on their field. This has helped to prevent unnecessary use of chemicals and has reduced the cost involved in controlling pest.
