It seems unlikely that the border interceptions included every introduced specimen of H. The difficulty in distinguishing H. The diapause mechanism is poorly understood, but the soil moisture limits for growth are well characterised by the permanent wilting point for annual vegetation.

Journal of Economic Entomology 6: In Brazil, the species shows a high adaptation capability, strong population growth, widespread distribution within different regions, and the ability to feed and develop on different host species. In the American continent, its occurrence was reported in several Brazilian regions, which resulted in significant economic losses in soybean Glycine max L.

The invasion threats to North America by Helicoverpa armigera.

Bulletin of Entomological ResearchCambridge, v. The threat posed to a broad range of economically important crops suggests that some significant preparedness activities may be warranted.

Australian Journal of Entomology. These uncertainties combine to limit our ability to model the potential distribution of H. In the same year, specimens of H. However, this might be heliccoverpa futile effort if H. Heliothine moths of Australia: For some crops, the sales values were available, and for others, production was gauged sooja weight of commodity [either pounds lbs or hundredweight cwt ].


Females can lay up to 3 eggs under laboratory conditions but in general potential fecundity lies in the range —1 and depends on the rearing host and ambient conditions [ 34 ].

First reported occurrence of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Brazil

Borchert6 Silvana V. These semi-arid areas are now modelled as having a mildly positive Annual Growth Index GI Abut an unsuitable Ecoclimatic Index, implying that these areas can support ephemeral populations during favourable seasons or years [ 20 ].

Such limits may, or may helocoverpa apply to H. Of twenty-four samples subjected to analysis and characterization by molecular techniques, ten individuals were identified as H. Reduced populations of H.

Status of American Bollworm on cotton at Stennar, Sudan. Either way, in terms of the risk assessment, there may be little that distinguishes between areas capable of supporting overwintering pupae, and those that experience seasonal immigrant flights of H. It may even be in the interests of the North American countries to co-invest in biological control and spread monitoring programmes in Central America and the Caribbean. The diapause and irrigation scenarios were combined into a fully factorial set of scenarios.

A climate model of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren Hymenoptera: Our objective is to detail areas at risk in North and South America at a fine spatial scale, discuss the risk of spread and impacts, and suggest interim mitigation strategies to delay the apparently inevitable invasion of North America.

Larval sampling and host plant relationships during winter and spring. Ecology and natural and chemical control. The model presented here suggests however that the exploitation of the northern cropping regions in the United States may not be as dependent on the annual migration of moths from more clement cropping regions Fig. Individuals entering diapause forsake opportunities for growth as a trade-off for protection against extremely high or low temperatures.

Noctuidae by conjunctive use of trap crops, neem and Trichogramma chilonis ishii in cotton. Potential for biological control of Heliothis species. A composite crop dataset was compiled from the global distribution datasets for a subset of key economic hosts: We plotted the known distribution of H.

Focus Scientic Research Academic Publisher.

Damaging low temperatures can destroy tissues, and tends to have a rapid stress accumulation rate. Helicoverpa zea ; Two bands: Noctuidae in Andhra Pradesh, India.

Interactions between insect movement and field sija. Helicoverpa armigera is found in areas that under natural rainfall conditions extended periods with soil moisture below permanent wilting point, and which appear too arid to support sufficient crop growth and hence population growth for H.

Managing ecosystem services in broadacre landscapes: The climate is centred onthe crop distribution data on and the value of production and irrigation data on As befits its wide latitudinal range, Helicovetpa.
