This study considers the problem of non-fragile reliable control synthesis for mathematical model of interaction between the sugarcane borer (Diatraea saccharalis) and its egg parasitoid Trichogramma galloi. In particular, the control could be substituted by periodic releases of a small population of natural enemies and hence it is important to propose the timevarying controller in sugarcane borer. The main aim of this study is to design a state feedback non-fragile (time-varying) reliable controller such that the states of the sugarcane borer system reach the equilibrium point within the desired period. A novel approach is proposed to deal with the uncertain matrices which appear in non-fragile reliable control. Finally, simulations based on sugarcane borer systems are conducted to illustrate the advantages and effectiveness of the proposed design technique. The result reveals that the proposed non-fragile control provides good performance in spite of periodic releases of a small population of natural enemies occurs.
