Relative susceptibility of stored cowpea, Vigna unguiculata Walp and soyabean, Glycine max (L.) Merrill, to infestation by the cowpea seed beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (Fab.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)



Relative susceptibility of stored cowpea, Vigna unguiculata Walp and soyabean, Glycine max (L.) Merrill, to infestation by the cowpea seed beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (Fab.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)



Indian Journal of Agricultural Research 38(2): 101-105



Cowpea, Vigna unguiculata Walp was significantly more susceptible than soybean, Glycine max (L.) Merrill, to Callosobruchus maculatus (Fab.) infestation; indices of susceptibility were 7.4 and 2.7 on cowpea and,soybean, respectively. In addition, the developmental period of C. maculatus on soybean was more than double the period on cowpea; the developmental periods were 24.1 +/- 3.0 days and 58.5 +/- 1.0 days on cowpea and soybean, respectively.
