  • Notes: Dietary requirement and fitness of phytophagous insect pest depend upon the nutrient chemistry of host plant. The present research was carried out to investigate the association of host-plant-preference and mortality of Phenacoccus solenopsis first instar influenced by chemical characteristics of plant species.
