Developing biological control programs, especially using inundative techniques with entomopathogens and parasitoids could slow the spread of H. Noctuidae From north and northeast of Brazil. Insect resistance to Bt crops: Nevertheless variation in population size due in part to climate [ 12 ] can put pressure on pest management systems [ 42 ]. A brave new world for an old world pest: Journal of Pest Science.

Helicoverpa armigera: current status and future perspectives in Brazil. – Portal Embrapa

Applied Entomology and Zoology. During the preparation of this paper, the distribution maps for H.

Insecticide resistance and mechanisms of embfapa to selected strains of Helicoverpa armigera Lepidoptera: The VOP data for each of the selected hosts were processed as follows:. The various data elements used in this analysis span a range of temporal frames.


Open in a separate window.

In this model we noted that the cold limits were most important for projecting the potential range of H. However, it is essential to emphasize the importance of the adoption of Integrated Pest Management IPM philosophy, since improperly applied insecticides will exacerbate pest problem by eliminating the biological control agents and increase the production cost unnecessarily.

The existence of these pests means that at least some of the control costs for H. Accessed Aug Positive collection records for the species here are rare and only occur in those seasons and years that favour host plant growth [ 20 ]. Published records for H. The pest status of H.

Results Potential distribution The potential distribution, ignoring the distribution of specific crop hosts, based on EI suitable for persistent populations and GI A temporary seasonal range expansion agrees well with the known distribution of this species Fig.

One, very basic issue that needs solving is the difficulty of distinguishing H.

Point locations and shaded areas indicate the goodness of fit of the model. Estimating the spatio-temporal risk of disease epidemics using a bioclimatic niche model. The most sensitive parameters influencing the modelled range of H.


For a small number of ports for which the International Air Transport Authority IATA codes could not be resolved, Google Maps was used to identify geographical coordinates manually based on the location description. Not surprisingly, many of these hosts are crops, including many field crops: Empirical analysis of pest data routinely collected from agricultural crops.

For all three sites, trapped moths occur at times which are on average climatically suitable for growth, with variation in seasonal climatic suitability reflected in part in changes in moth numbers Fig. We conclude that, in spite of H. Production values have been taken from MapSpaM data [ 69 ].

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. In the period being considered, the overall interceptions remained fairly steady untilwhen H. Measuring development of Heliothis species Heliothis: Forecasting Helicoverpa populations in Australia: Host plant flowering increases both adult oviposition preference and larval performance of a generalist herbivore.
