Lygus pratensis (Linn.) as a pest of seed crops of lucerne


Lygus pratensis (Linn.) as a pest of seed crops of lucerne



Anales del Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Agrarias, Serie: Proteccion Vegetal 3: 349-358



The yields obtained from seed-crops of lucerne in the Duero Basin, Spain, declined steadily from 800 kg/ha in 1960 to 146 kg/ha in 1969. Though various explanations were sought and solutions proposed, it is now thought that the losses were largely attributable to Lygus pratensis (L.). In 1969, it was estimated that at least 30-50% of the potential yield was lost as a result of the feeding by the bug in the flowers.
