Simplified rearing and bioassay for the seedcorn maggot, Hylemya platura (Meigen)

Other Titles

Abstract

Before 1926, Leach (7) was able to rear larvae of the seedcorn maggot (SCM), now known as Hylemya platura (Meigen), on potatoes or beef extract agar inoculated with the causal organism of potato blackleg, Erwinia atroseptica (van Hall) Jennison. Since then, attempts to maintain colonies in the laboratory have met with limited success because of low egg production until McLeod found that protein was essential for oviposition (8). Harris et al. (5), using the information of McLeod, was able to establish a productive laboratory colony of SCM. Although excellent results are obtained with this technique, procedures are somewhat time consuming. A simplified technique has been developed at the Geneva Experiment Station which produces large numbers of SCM for use in laboratory studies."?
