A large annual acridid biomass should be produced on acridid farms to manufacture high-quality, low-cost feed for the poultry industry. A laboratory experiment was conducted to measure the nymphal mortality, nymphal developmental period, growth indices, and adult life span of 2 common acridids (Oxya hyla hyla and Spathosternum prasiniferum prasiniferum) on 3 food plants (Dactyloctenium aegyptium, Cynodon dactylon, and Brachiaria mutica). Among the 3 food plants, D. aegyptium was suitable only…

TLDR
Nymphs and adults of O. nigeriensis were reared on selected food plants in the laboratory, this included Axonopus compressus, Cynodon dactylon, Eleusine indica, Seteria gracilipes, used singly and as a mixture of all four.

Space requirement for mass rearing of two common Indian acridid adults (Orthoptera: Acrididae) in laboratory condition.

TLDR
It was concluded that being smaller in size, more numbers of S. prasiniferum could be kept per unit area compared to O. fuscovittata, which are good for mass rearing as in these cases mortality rate is very less.

Effect of food plants on the growth rate and survivability of Hieroglyphus banian (Fabricius) (Orthoptera: Acridoidea), a major paddy pest in India

TLDR
Although, this species consumes a wide variety of food plants from different families, the families Poaceae and Cyperaceae were found to be the most preferred, among plants belonging to these two families, Cynodon dactylon, Oryza sativa andCyperus kyllingia were highly suitable for H. banian growth.

TLDR
Z. mays and O. sativa were found to be most preferable food plants to H. oryzivorus and there was no significant difference in the developmental period of nymphs either reared on C. dactylon or mixed food.

TLDR
Insects were able to digest bean and clover more efficiently than either wheat seedlings or cotton leaves and the growth rate was the highest in clover fed groups, indicating that clover was utilised efficiently than the other groups.
