Differential larval host suitability of cabbage and Brussels sprout for Mamestra brassicae (Noctuidae: Lepidoptera)



Differential larval host suitability of cabbage and Brussels sprout for Mamestra brassicae (Noctuidae: Lepidoptera)



Mededelingen van de Faculteit Landbouwwetenschappen, Rijksuniversiteit Gent 49(3a): 699-707



In the laboratory in Belgium, larvae of Mamestra brassicae fed on cabbage or Brussels sprouts consumed significantly larger amounts of younger than of mature leaves of both food-plants. Larval weight indicated that Brussels sprouts were more favourable than cabbage to larval growth and development; this finding was confirmed by weighing larvae that had developed on these plants in the field.
