Evaluation of biological activity of bacillus thuringiensis, soybean trypsin inhibitor and plant lectins against the legume pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera uri icon

abstract

  • In the present studies, we ,evaluated Bt, SBTl and plant lect~ns for theirbiological efficacy against the legume pod borer Helicoverpa amigera.Following were the specific objectives of the present investigation:1. To evaluate antifeedant activity of Bt and soybean trypsin inhibitor (SBTI)genes against H. armigera under dual-choice and no-choice conditions.2. To evaluate the effect of SBTl and plant lectins on the survival anddevelopment of H. armigera.3. To evaluate the effect of Bt and SBTl genes on consumption and utilizationof food by H. armigera.4. To evaluate the effect of Bt and SBTl transformed plants on the biology ofH. armigera
