To prevent the grasshopper from destroying the pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides) crop, the seeds are first soaked in the juice of wind killer (Clerodendrum phlomidis). The seeds are then sown. The grasshopper keeps off such a field. Thus the destruction caused by the grasshopper is controlled. Besides, adopting the practice will increase pearl millet production. Many people have adopted this traditional method.
