Başlık:Seed-damaging insects on dwarf mesquite Prosopis farcta Banks & Sol. Macbride

Yazar: Abdalla E. T. ADAM, Sibel UYGUR, F. Nezihi UYGUR

Özet: Dwarf mesquite [Prosopis farcta (Banks & Sol.) Macbride] is a widespread perennial weed species in the bean (Fabaceae) family. This study was conducted in Adana Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey where the plant covers a large area and constitutes a major constraint to crop production. The study aimed to identify the herbivorous insects feeding on dwarf mesquite and their seasonal impact on this weed as potential agents in its biological control. For that purpose, mature pods were collected from the field margins at three different sites and brought to the laboratory. Seed production and the damage caused by insects were assessed. There were significant differences in the mean number of seeds per pod between the three sites. Species representing different insect families were collected feeding inside the pods and seeds. Five bruchid species were identified and they are considered potential native biological control agents for dwarf mesquite.
