Studies on the sterile male technique as a means of control of Adoxophyes orana (Lepidopt., Tortricidae). 3. An evaluation of competitiveness of laboratory-reared moths

, : Studies on the sterile male technique as a means of control of Adoxophyes orana (Lepidopt., Tortricidae). 3. An evaluation of competitiveness of laboratory-reared moths. Netherlands Journal of Plant Pathology 79(6): 229-235

In this third part of a series from the Netherlands on Adoxophyes orana (Fisch. v. Roesl.) (see preceding abstract, etc.), it is stated that the mating competitiveness of an inbred gamma -irradiated mass-reared strain of the moth was approximately half that of males collected in the field as full-fed larvae or pupae. The reduction in competitiveness was not the result of irradiation.
