Mealy bug (Maconellicoccus hirsutus) (Pseudococcidae: Hemiptera) out break on herbaceum cotton (Gossypium herbaceum) in Wagad cotton belt of Kachchh



Mealy bug (Maconellicoccus hirsutus) (Pseudococcidae: Hemiptera) out break on herbaceum cotton (Gossypium herbaceum) in Wagad cotton belt of Kachchh



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 70(10): 705-706



This study describes the outbreak of mealy bug on Gossypium herbaceum in the Wagad cotton belt of Gujarat. The first incidence of the pest was reported in April 1997. This preliminary study shows that hybrid as well as desi varieties of cotton are prone to mealy bug attack. The infestation of desi cotton was highest, probably due to the fact that farmers use minimum pesticides in this crop. Ficus trees, which are very abundant in this area, were found to be good breeding sites for this pest.
