The effects of the endophytic fungus Acremonium starii on feeding and oviposition of the Argentine stem weevil


, : The effects of the endophytic fungus Acremonium starii on feeding and oviposition of the Argentine stem weevil. Proceedings of the Forty Fourth New Zealand Weed and Pest Control Conference: 181-184

The effects of Acremonium starii infection in Bromus anomalus on feeding and oviposition by adults of the curculionid Listronotus bonariensis were studied in the laboratory. In choice tests, weevils preferred healthy plants for feeding and oviposition.

Ryegrasses with high levels of infection with endophytic fung...

The effect of Lolium endophyte on feeding and oviposition by adult Argentine stem weevil was studied in the laboratory and screenhouse. The effects of endophyte on weevil behavior were determined in choice and non-choice experiments. Feeding and o...

Survival of Argentine stem weevil from eggs to 4th instar larvae was compared in endophyte-infected and endophyte-free ryegrass in the screenhouse. Survival was significantlty poorer in endophyte-infected plants. The results are discussed in relat...

Resistance in ryegrass (Lolium perenne) infected by the fungus Acremonium lolii to the curculionid Listronotus bonariensis was assayed in the laboratory at 16 degrees C and LD 16:8. In a choice test 52 of the 73 L. bonariensis adults tested, prefe...
