field crop insects. 6. Timing. Changes in planting time or harvesting time are used to keep the infesting stage of a pest separated from the susceptible stage of the host. 7. Resistant Plant Varieties. The sources of resistance to insects in crops have been classified as non -preference, antibiosis, and tolerance. Insect. The Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata), also known as the Colorado beetle, the ten-striped spearman, the ten-lined potato beetle, or the potato bug, is a major pest of potato crops. It is about 10 mm ( in) long, with a bright yellow/orange body and five bold brown stripes along the length of each of its to America, it spread rapidly in potato crops across.

This can be a good place to locate sticky traps that will alert you to inward-bound insects.

However, a proper insect pest management program will minimise losses to potato crop. 1. Potato tuber moth: Phthorimaea operculella.

10 most deadly bugs that destroy crop production. Potato, Solanum tuberosum, is an herbaceous perennial plant in the family Solanaceae which is grown for its edible potato plant has a branched stem and alternately arranged leaves consisting of leaflets which are both of unequal size and shape.

The leaflets can be oval to oblong in shape and the leaves can reach 10–30 cm (4–12 in) in length and 5–15 cm (2–6 in) wide. The key elements to a healthy crop of potatoes are good hygiene and crop rotation.

At the end of the growing season remove all traces of your potato plants from the top and below soil even if they have no pests or diseases.

Potatoes left in the ground will eventually rot causing pest and disease. Insect - Insect - Damage to growing crops: Insects are responsible for two major kinds of damage to growing crops.

First is direct injury done to the plant by the feeding insect, which eats leaves or burrows in stems, fruit, or roots. There are hundreds of pest species of this type, both in larvae and adults, among orthopterans, homopterans, heteropterans, coleopterans, lepidopterans, and.

Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata (CPB) is the most serious insect pest of potatoes in Maryland and will also attack eggplant, tomato and pepper in that order of preference.

Both the adult striped beetle and the black-spotted, hump-backed red larvae are foliage feeders. The value of insect pollination, the only type of pollination upon which man can exert much influence, is not limited to the cultivated crops.

Bohart (*)2 pointed out that the most drastic effect of the absence of pollinating insects would be in uncultivated areas, where, as a result, most soil-holding and soil-enriching plants would die out.

Potato insects. Potatoes have a vast market since many communities globally use it. However, many pests attack the crop above and below the soil level in the farm.

Such insects eat away and suck the sap from the leaves. To the tubers, they make shallow trenches thus enhancing rotting or paving the way for other diseases to attack the crop. Minute pirate bugs are common on pasture, in orchards and on many agricultural crops, including cotton, peanuts, alfalfa, strawberries, peas, corn and potatoes.

They feed greedily on thrips, insect eggs, aphids and small caterpillars and can devour 30 or more spider mites a day. Radish, Raphanus sativus, is an herbaceous annual or biennial plant in the family Brassicaceae, grown for its edible radish plant has a short hairy stem and a rosette (ground level horizontal and circular leaves) of oblong shaped leaves which measure 5–30 cm (2–12 in) in length.
