Distribution and biology of Abutilon theophrasti Med. in Croatia

, : Distribution and biology of Abutilon theophrasti Med. in Croatia. Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkrankheiten und Pflanzenschutz (Sonderh. 17): 153-158

Abutilon theophrasti has been found, since the 1980s, in maize in East Croatia. During the last 10 years, it has also been found in soyabeans, sugarbeet, potatoes, sunflowers, wheat, barley and onions. Its geographical distribution in Croatia in 1999 is presented. A study was carried out in 1999 of A. theophrasti populations in maize in NW Croatia. A. theophrasti was present in maize fields during April-November (until the occurrence of frost).
