Research on the technique of radiation sterilisation of insect pests in the USSR.




International Atomic Energy Agency; Food and Agriculture Organization: Sterility principle for insect control 1974. Proceedings of the symposium on the sterility principle for insect control jointly organized by the IAEA and the FAO of the United Nations and held in Innsbruck, 22-26 July 1974. 1975 pp. 103-114


The authors outline work in the Soviet Union on radiation-induced sterilisation for the control of insect pests. Particular attention has been paid to the control of pests of stored grains and pulses, and facilities have been developed for the irradiation of large quantities of foodstuffs during storage. The species used in studies to develop artificial diets, procedures for mass-rearing and facilities for irradiation in general have included Agrotis segetum (Schiff.), Heliothis armigera (Hb.) (Chloridea obsoleta auct.) Hylemya (Chortophila) brassicae (Bch.), Myiopardalis pardalina (Big.), Yponomeuta padellus malinellus Zell. (Hyponomeuta malinella), Cydia (Grapholitha) molesta (Busck.), Pegomya hyoscyami (Panz.), C. (Laspeyresia) pomonella (L.), Acanthoscelides obtectus (Say) and Bruchus pisorum (L.).
