Systems of different technological levels have been developed for the mass-rearing of cassava mealybugs, Phenacoccus manihoti, cassava green mites, Mononychellus tanajoa and their natural enemies. Prototypes have been built and are being evaluated for host plant growth, host insect and mite production and output of natural enemies. One of the prototypes uses a paternoster system in which trays each holding 66 cassava plants rotate around a light source. After each rotation the trays receive and empty a given amount of nutrient solution. The other uses a perforated vertical cylinder holding up to 250 cassava cuttings. The plants are irrigated through a pump or gravity system. Six to eight weeks are required to complete the cycle from planting to harvest of the natural enemies in either system. These systems reduce significantly the labour input required for conventional rearing systems and at the same time improve the reliability and quality of the end product.
