Study TypeOther
Abstract The genus Spodoptera belongs to Lepidoptera and consists of 30 species among which more than a half are polyphagous and pests of agriculture. Spodoptera frugiperda is also polyphagous and exists as two host-plant strains, one found on corn, cotton, sorghum, the other on rice and various pasture gras .. [more]
