Abstract

The effect of gamma irradiation on the greasy cutworm A. ipsilon (Hufn.). Special attention was given to the sterilization studies in the hope of promoting the sterile insect technique for the pest control program. The obtained results could be summarized as follows: Three ages of eggs were irradiated as newly laid egg (6-12 h old), middle age egg (24-36 h-old) and old egg (60-72 h-old). The mortality among irradiated eggs was directly related to the increase of irradiation dose or the decrease of the age of treated eggs. The dose of irradiation required for complete mortality was found to be 0.0525 and 0.7 Gy for newly laid eggs, middle age and old eggs, respectively. Irradiation of eggs had no effect on the incubation period.
