GERMPLASM EVALUATION OF GUAVA AGAINST BARK EATING CATERPILLAR, Indarbela tetraonis (Moore)
Thirty five guava germplasm collections were evaluated under field conditions for resistance to bark eating cateipillar, Indarbela tetraonis (Moore) during 2000-02 at Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore, India. The mean number of bored holes per tree varied from 0.00 in ‘Spear Acid’ to 11.75 in ‘EC147036 (7-I2)’. Five accessions viz., ‘Bangalore Local‘, ‘Lalit‘, ‘Portugal’, ‘Spear Acid’ and ‘Superior Sour Lucidum’ were resistant (<2 holesltree) while ‘Seedless’, ‘Hafsi‘ and exotic collection viz., ‘ECl47036(7-12)’ were highly susceptible (>10 holes/tree). Popular cultivars viz., ‘Allahabad Sat‘eda', ‘Arka Mridula', ‘Chittidar’ and 'Benaras‘ were moderately resistant (>2-5 holes/tree).
