Enhanced synthetic diet for rearing H. armigera under laboratory conditions

Boopal Krishnareddy and Vageeshbabu S Hanur

This manuscript majorly reports the modification in synthetic diet using Protein-X towards improvement in rearing procedure for H.armigera. Development of numerous synthetic diets in laboratory for rearing H.armigera has been given high priority by using a mixture of basic ingredients like chickpea, wheat flour and tapioca. Egg fecundity is being commonly studied and various formulations for mass rearing have been endeavored. Protein- X is used for enhancement in egg production along with this chickpea diet and observations in egg mass proved noteworthy. The results on maximum egg yield reported better in comparison with regular diet. This artificial diet along with Protein-X is suitable to overcome the drawbacks during egg laying and is helpful in obtaining appropriate successive generations.
