The nutrient composition and enzyme activities in larvae of the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua (Hübner), fed on high, medium or low gossypol cotton cultivars were examined at different time intervals. Significantly lower free fatty acid was observed in larvae fed for 6 h on high gossypol ‘M9101’ compared to larvae fed on the low (ZMS13) and intermediate (HZ401) gossypol cultivars. Significantly higher trypsin activity was observed in larvae fed on high gossypol ‘M9101’ for 24 h compared to… CONTINUE READING
