Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken to investigate the Foraging behavior and differences in host plant selection of mustard saw fly, Athalia lugens on different Brassica spp. The highest grubs population of A. proxima were recorded at 6.00 PM (2.68 grubs per linear meter row of plants) followed by at 6.00 AM (2.55), 9.00 AM (2.07), 12.00 PM (1.06) and lowest at 3.00 PM (1.06) and among different Brassica species, Crambe abyssinica (0.47) and E. sativa (0.38) were more resistant to A. proxima lugens and B. campestris (2.75) and B. juncea (2.90) were more susceptible.
