DEVELOPMENT AND SURVIVAL OF Bactrocera correcta (Bezzi) (DIPTERA : TEPHRITIDAE) ON SELECTED GUAVA CULTIVARS
Effect of guava cultivars Ac 10, Chittidar; Lucknow 46 and Lucknow 49 on larval survival, adult eclosion and size of Bactrocera mrrecra were investigated. There was significant variation in larval and pupal periods but no significant difference in pupation rates. The per cent adult emergence from puparia \vas found higher (90.6%) on Chittidar (susceptible) and lower (59.0%) on Lucknow-46 (resistant). C/ritlidar yielded the largest adult (>2.l7 mm head width). High Vitamin C, total soluble solids and total phenol in fruits were factors contributing to resistance.
