Population growth, longevity and fecundity of Rhopalosiphum maidis Fitch (Homoptera: Aphididae), on wheat and barley seedlings grown under different nutritional conditions

Population growth, longevity and fecundity of Rhopalosiphum maidis Fitch (Homoptera: Aphididae), on wheat and barley seedlings grown under different nutritional conditions

Jap, J. appl. Ent. Zool, Tokyo, 7: 2, 132-139. f

In Japan, Aphis (Rhopalosiphum) maidis Fitch is a serious pest of winter barley but rarely attacks wheat, and the population growth, survival rate and fecundity of apterae on seedlings of the two plants were therefore investigated. As reported in the authors' summary of this account of the work, barley plants grown under all cultural conditions tested always resulted in more rapid population growth, higher survival rate and greater fecundity of the aphid than wheat plants.
