Assessment of numbers of striped cucumber beetle adults and frequency of feeding injury on muskmelon cultivars



Assessment of numbers of striped cucumber beetle adults and frequency of feeding injury on muskmelon cultivars



Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science 1985; 94: 304



Field plantings of 74 muskmelon cultivars in Indiana were evaluated in respect of attractiveness to, and feeding injury caused by, adults of the chrysomelid Acalymma vittatum. Muskmelon plants in the seedling and early vining stages were observed for numbers of beetles and evidence of feeding damage to leaves and stems. The highest populations of beetles were found on the cultivars Cobmelon, Tamdew and White-rinded honey-dew, Charentais Improved and Ogen.
