Host evasion - a prospective approach for suppressing Heliothis damage

Host evasion - a prospective approach for suppressing Heliothis damage

International Pigeonpea Newsletter (2): 62-64

Eight cultivars of pigeon pea that varied in their times of maturing were tested in Uttar Pradesh, India, in 1979-80 for damage by pod-boring Lepidoptera (Maruca testulalis (Geyer) and Heliothis armigera (Hb.)), Melanagromyza obtusa (Mall.) and bruchids Maruca testulalis was found to be the key borer in early varieties and H. armigera in medium and late ones.
