The sugarcane woolly aphid, Ceratovacuna lanigera has been reported in outbreak proportion from Bihar and eastern Uttarpradesh. The pest breeds on plant of the family Poaceac, but has been also observed on member of Bixaceae, Theaceae and Combretaceae. Integrated pest management involving mainly mechanical and biological control appears to be the best option, especially in the areas of pest ecology and distribution. The role of resistant varieties in managing the pest needs to be carefully evaluated.
