Mechanisms Underlying Resistance of Strawberry Cultivars to Tarnished Plant Bugs

Other Titles

Abstract

The present study investigated mechanisms that underlie resistance of strawberry cultivars to tarnished plant bugs, Lygus lineolaris (Hemiptera: Miridae). Inter-plant distribution of emerged nymphs in cage experiments suggests that females lay more eggs on plants with numerous fruits, although cultivar per se did not influence oviposition behavior of females. A large number of nymphs emerged from the inflorescence of strawberry plants, which suggests that ovipositing females may cause extensive damage to strawberry fruits. Distinct within-plant distribution of emerged nymphs for different cultivars further suggest that the relative damage caused by ovipositing females may vary for different cultivars.
