Development and reproduction of the green peach aphid myzus persicae homoptera aphididae on upper and lower leaves of 3 potato cultivars



Development and reproduction of the green peach aphid myzus persicae homoptera aphididae on upper and lower leaves of 3 potato cultivars



Canadian Entomologist 117(2): 247-252



The influence of potato cultivar [Solanum tuberosum tuberosum (L.) cv. Katahdin (long-season), Norchip (mid-season) and Superior (short-season)] and vertical leaf position on certain life statistics of the green peach aphid, M. persicae (Sulzer), were assessed in a glasshouse environment. Aphids were caged on upper and lower leaves of each cultivar. Developmental time .**GRAPHIC**. requirements for pre-reproductive life stages were similar among cultivars and between leaf positions. Longevity was similar among cultivars within leaf position. However, aphids survived 62.3, 53.6 and .**GRAPHIC**. longer on lower leaves than on upper leaves of Superior, Norchip and Katahdin (P < 0.05 on Superior and Katahdin). Mean generation time (MGT) was similar among cultivars on upper leaves. On lower leaves, MGT was .**GRAPHIC**. shorter on Superior than on Katahdin. MGT was 15.2, 6.9 and .**GRAPHIC**. shorter on lower leaves than on upper leaves of Superior, Norchip and Katahdin, respectively (P < 0.05 on Superior). Total fecundity and intrinsic rate of increase were greater on the lower leaves of each cultivar.
