Resistance management of Pectinophora gossypiella (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) includes collection of larvae from fields, rearing to F1 generations under laboratory conditions, and evaluation against pesticides or Bt toxins. A critical step in its mass rearing is the availability of oviposition substrates suitable to produce sufficient neonates to generate robust bioassay data. This study demonstrates the suitability of an artificial oviposition substrate and minimizes the dependency on natural substrates which…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
