In a related study in a lab no-choice experiment with the same population of SCB, adult survival was high on Raleigh, Texas Common, and Captiva (72-78%), but survival on Floratam
and FX-10 was only 48 and 58%, respectively, after 7 d of confinement (Reinert unpublished data).
The planthoppers were found in low numbers in Floratam, Palmetto, and Seville and were moderately abundant in Bitterblue.
Se encontraron los saltadores de plantas en numeros bajos en Floratam, Palmetto y Seville y fueron moderadamente abundante en Bitterblue.
Five fields of Bitterblue, 8 fields of Classic, 10 fields of Floratam, 5 fields of Palmetto, and 4 fields of Seville were sampled.
Thus, a laboratory study was conducted to determine if population growth on Classic and Floratam corresponded to field observations.
The 4 treatments were Classic with and without planthoppers and Floratam with and without planthoppers.
