Abstract:

The crop damage caused by cereal leaf beetles of the genus Oulema melanopus L (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) has been increased in recent decades. The purpose of these studies was to evaluate the antixenosis resistance to cereal leaf beetle in Indian wheat varieties/genotypes/advanced breeding lines of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) created in India. The investigations were conducted under field conditions on natural infestation of existing population of cereal leaf beetle on wheat plants. The extent of differences between 33 genotypes was established to the infestation of cereal leaf beetles and their host suitability. The lowest incidence and degree of damage by cereal leaf beetles was observed in cultivar Ajanta i.e. 3.33 and 7 % respectively while the highest incidence and degree of damage was found in cultivar HB-208 i.e. 35.55 and 37% respectively. Results of our investigations can contribute to the identification of genotypes as host plants of the cereal leaf beetles and their usage in the bridging process.
