Vertical distributions of tobacco looper plusia argentifera lepidoptera noctuidae eggs and larvae on 3 tobacco varieties in north queensland australia



Vertical distributions of tobacco looper plusia argentifera lepidoptera noctuidae eggs and larvae on 3 tobacco varieties in north queensland australia



Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences 34(2): 169-174



Mature, flowering tobacco plants of the varieties Sirone 2, Hicks Q46 and CSIRO 4OT, which were widely cultivated in the Mareeba-Dimbulah district of north Queensland [Australia] in the 1973-74 growing season, were destructively sampled. P. argentifera Guenee female moths preferentially selected leaves in the lower half of the plants as oviposition sites. Little difference was recorded in the patterns of egglaying on the 3 varieties. After eclosion, 1st instar larvae were found on similar parts of the plants, indicating that they were relatively sedentary. The distributions of eggs and 1st instar larvae implied that covering the bottom leaves of mature, flowering tobacco plants with non-systemic insecticides is required for the control of P. argentifera.
