Suitability of Cultivated and Wild Crucifers for the Development of Diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)

G. Ayalew, B. Lohr , C.K.P.O. Ogol and J. Baumgartner

Abstract:
The performance of the Diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella L., on Ethiopian cultivated and wild crucifers was studied in the laboratory for two generations. Head cabbage, Brassica oleracea var. capitata L., was the most suitable host with the shortest developmental period and the highest reproductive potential. Both developmental period and life table statistics showed that the weed Erucastrum arabicum Fisch. and Mey was more suitable than some of the cultivated species.
