Evaluation of French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivars and breeding lines for resistance to thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) pests in Kenya



Evaluation of French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivars and breeding lines for resistance to thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) pests in Kenya



Journal of Entomology 4(3): 202-209



Nine French bean commercial varieties and over ninety breeding lines were assessed to ascertain their susceptibility to thrips Megalurothrips sjostedti Trybom and Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande). Samples of thrips infestation were collected after anthesis at weekly intervals for four weeks. Evidence from the study showed significant differences among the French bean cultivars and breeding lines in thrips infestation.
