Effect of management of organic wastes on inactivation of Brassica nigra and Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lactucae using soil biosolarization

BACKGROUND Soil biosolarization is a promising alternative to conventional fumigation. Volatile fatty acids (VFAs) produced in the soil through fermentation of amended organic matter can affect...

Does selective hormesis impact herbicide resistance evolution in weeds? ACCase‐resistant populations of Alopecurus myosuroides Huds. as a case study

BACKGROUND A field‐evolved herbicide‐resistant weed population can represent a heterogeneous composite of subpopulations that differ in their susceptibility and responsiveness to herbicide...

Fitness costs of infection with Serratia symbiotica are associated with greater susceptibility to insecticides in the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum

BACKGROUND Aphids are agricultural pests that damage crops by direct feeding and by vectoring important plant viruses. Bacterial symbionts can influence aphid biology, e.g. by providing essential...

The rice planthopper parasitoid Anagrus nilaparvatae is not at risk when feeding on honeydew derived from Bt rice

BACKGROUND Honeydew is a sugar‐rich excretion produced by sap‐feeding Sternorrhyncha and is an important source of carbohydrates for natural enemies, especially for parasitoids. Honeydew derived...

Development of an attract‐and‐infect system to control Rhynchophorus ferrugineus with the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana

BACKGROUND A new Beauveria bassiana‐based Attract and Infect Device (AID) to control Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Olivier (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) was developed. The virulence and persistence of...

Resistance development, stability, cross‐resistance potential, biological fitness and biochemical mechanisms of spinetoram resistance in the Thrips hawaiiensis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)

BACKGROUND Spinetoram, a new type of spinosyns with novel modes of action, has provided effective thrips control programs, but resistance remains a threat. In the present study, a laboratory T....
