Biological suppression of coconut rhinoceros beetle Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) in Minicoy, Lakshadweep by Oryctes baculovirus - impact on pest population and damage



Biological suppression of coconut rhinoceros beetle Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) in Minicoy, Lakshadweep by Oryctes baculovirus - impact on pest population and damage



Journal of Plantation Crops 16(Suppl.): 163-170



Adults of the coconut pest Oryctes rhinoceros were infected with Baculovirus and released in the field on Minicoy I., Kerala, India, in 1983. Pre-release observations revealed high levels of infestation by the pest and absence of viral disease in the population. Two years after the release, the virus had spread to subsequent generations of adults and larvae in breeding sites.
