Observations of fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), larvae infesting plots of Miscanthus giganteus Greef and Deuter ex Hodkinson and Renvoize prompted laboratory-based tests of survival, development, and feeding preferences on leaf tissue fromM. giganteus and switchgrass, Panicum virgatum L. Survival from hatch to pupation was 70 and 50% for fall armyworms reared on switchgrass and M. giganteus, respectively, although survival of the S. frugiperda rice… CONTINUE READING
