Host preference of sorghum earhead bug, Calocoris angustatus Lethierry (Hemiptera: Miridae)



Host preference of sorghum earhead bug, Calocoris angustatus Lethierry (Hemiptera: Miridae)



Entomon 112: 121-125



The host preference and biology of Calocoris angustatus on 10 common host-plants of this pest were evaluated under field conditions in Karnataka, India, in 1978-79. The highest population was recorded on grain sorghum followed by fodder sorghum and maize. The survival of nymphs was maximal on grain sorghum (92%) followed by fodder sorghum (80%) and little millet (Panicum miliare (80%).
