Potato growers should take preventive measure to protect their crop from insect pests like the caterpillars of cut worm that can cut young plants close to the ground at night. In this way, the plants can be damaged even before they grow. At the start of potato formation, light traps must be placed near the plants to prevent hollowing of potatoes and then find the underground insects and destroy them. Hoeing and irrigation of the crop should be done immediately. Contact the agriculture expert for chemical control.
