Wheat yield reduction due to wheat curl mite (Acari: Eriophyidae) infestations



Wheat yield reduction due to wheat curl mite (Acari: Eriophyidae) infestations



Journal of Agricultural and Urban Entomology 19(1): 9-13



Greenhouse tests conducted during 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 evaluated the effect of nonviruliferous wheat curl mites (Aceria tosichella Keifer) on the hard red winter wheat cultivar "Ike." Differences in wheat curl mite numbers between artificially infested plants and controls averaged 9,702 and 12,938 for plants harvested in 1999 and 2000, respectively. In 1999 the wheat curl mites caused significant losses of 30% in grain yield, 23% in kernel weight, and 12% in test weight.
