In Brazil, the silverleaf whitefly (SLW), Bemisia tabaci biotype B, is a serious soybean pest. SLW management is difficult and new control strategies, such as host–plant resistance, are required. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the biology of SLW, from eggs to adults, on seven soybean cultivars. The emergence of adult insects was monitored daily.… (More)
To test the hypothesis that the plant stress related elicitor cis-jasmone (cJ) provides protection in soybean pods against the seed-sucking stink bug pest, Euschistus heros, the growth of E. heros on cJ-treated pods was investigated using three soybean cultivars differing in insect susceptibility, i.e. BRS 134 (susceptible), IAC 100 (resistant) and Dowling… (More)
