Sugarcane (Saccharum Officanarum L) is an annual plantation crop, which has its own characteristics, because it contains sugar in its stems. Sugarcane belongs to the grass family (graminae) like rice, reeds, corn, bamboo and others. One of the problems that exist in sugarcane plantations at PT Perkebunan Nusantara II is stem borer pests. Losses due to borer attacks can be in the form of a decrease in sugarcane weight, yield and quality of the sap obtained. pests on sugarcane plants cause a decrease in sugar production of about 10%. There are three types of stem borer pests found in PT Perkebunan Nusantara II, namely shoot borer pests, striped stem borer pests, and giant stem borer pests. Meanwhile, biological control is by spreading natural predators of pests which will suppress the population of widespread distribution and breeding of pests which are commonly called parasitoids. Parasitoids will become predators of their respective hosts, so appropriate diagnostic therapy for stem borer pests is needed so that the spread of stem borer pests does not become more widespread and the parasitoids to be spread operate effectively. By using the Certainty Factor method, you can find out the types of pests that are attacking sugarcane plants. Based on manual calculations, the dipole yield was 79% on one of the selected pest types based on the symptoms induced in the sugarcane plant.
