Effect of temperature on development, survival and reproduction of the mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) on cotton
Abstract The effect of temperature on life cycle of the solenopsis mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley, on cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) was assessed under laboratory conditions at ten constantExpand
Use of ground based hyperspectral remote sensing for detection of stress in cotton caused by leafhopper (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae)
Detection of crop stress is one of the major applications of hyperspectral remote sensing in agriculture. Many studies have demonstrated the capability of remote sensing techniques for detection ofExpand
Temperature Thresholds and Thermal Requirements for the Development of the Rice Leaf Folder, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis
Abstract The rice leaf folder, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis Guenée (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is a predominant foliage feeder in all the rice ecosystems. The objective of this study was to examine theExpand
Nomuraea Rileyi — A Potential Mycoinsecticide
Interest in entomopathogenic fungi dates back to over a hundred years. They cause a regular and tremendous mortality of many pests in many parts of the world and do, in fact, constitute an efficientExpand
Prevalence of “R” strain and molecular diversity of fall army worm Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in India
The fall army worm (FAW) Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) is an invasive pest native to Americas, and it has recently been observed invasive to India. The mtCOI based analysis of the populations ofExpand
Identification of Virulent Isolates of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Nomuraea Rileyi (F) Samson for the Management of Helicoverpa Armigera and Spodoptera Litura
Eleven geographical isolates of the entomopathogenic fungusNomuraea rileyi (Farlow) Samson of Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner)/Spodoptera litura(Fabricius) origin were studied for efficacy against theExpand
Remote Sensing of Biotic Stress in Crop Plants and Its Applications for Pest Management
Remote sensing (RS) of biotic stress is based on the assumption that stress interferes with photosynthesis and physical structure of the plant at tissue and canopy level, and thus affects theExpand
Hyperspectral indices for assessing damage by the solenopsis mealybug (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) in cotton
Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley, a native of North America, is a widespread exotic mealybug infesting cotton, Gossypium spp. in several countries. Monitoring of this pest is generally undertakenExpand
Spatio-temporal dynamics of the parasitoid, Aenasius bambawalei Hayat (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) on mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley in cotton based cropping systems and associated weed flora
The mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley, a polyphagous pest with a wide host range is of recent occurrence on Bt cotton in all the three major cotton growing zones in India. The firstExpand
Weed hosts of cotton mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae).
The exotic cotton mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) invaded India during 2006, and caused widespread infestation across all nine cotton growing states. P.Expand
