Deleterious Effects of Cotton leaf curl virus on Longevity and Fecundity of Whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius)
J.S. Sidhu, R.S. Mann and N.S. Butter

Abstract:
Cotton leaf curl virus (CLCuV) has a complex association with their whitefly vector. To further understand these relationships, longevity and fecundity of viruliferous and non-viruliferous Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) was compared on three different ages of cotton plants (25, 45 and 55 days old). Cotton leaf curl virus infection reduced the fecundity and longevity of B. tabaci compared with non-viruliferous whiteflies. Both viruliferous and non-viruliferous whiteflies survived longer on older plants than on younger plants. Female whiteflies survived longer than the male whiteflies irrespective of their being viruliferous or non-viruliferous. Plant age did not affect the fecundity however egg viability declined with increasing age of plants.
