Evaluation of Spring Canolas and Mustards of Varying Age for Relative Preference by False Chinch Bugs, Nysius raphanus (Howard)

N. Demirel and W. Cranshaw

Abstract:
The False Chinch Bug (FCB), Nysius raphanus (Howard), is one of the most important pests on the Brassicaceae plants. Eleven different Brassica cultivars were tested at two different seedling stages for relative feeding preferences by FCB in the greenhouse conditions. False chinch bug showed strong feeding preference for older plants, particularly among the cultivars ZEM1, Debut and CO1. The cultivars preferred less due to age were Helios, Alto and W1-23. In addition, the spring mustard W1-23 was consistently least preferred by false chinch bug.
