Although for crops of commercial importance like Kanda it is considered as pest but by using this insect as medicine in treatment of many complicated diseases, the traditional healers try to compensate the losses caused by this insect.
Kanda (or Sweet Potato in English) is a diffusely spreading, tuberous plant rooting at the nodes.
Although the markets at villages and small towns still supply Kanda roots to the natives but I have noted during the surveys that its popularity is decreasing among the natives living in Urban areas particularly those belong to new generation.
