Title:
The beanfly (Agromyza phaseoli, Coq.)
Author(s):
Publication date:
1914
Summary:
In Sri Lanka, when Ophiomyia phaseoli Tryon (= Agromyza phaseoli Coq.) is present, the bean crop is often a complete failure. O. phaseoli was reared from mungbean and blackgram, and although growing in neighboring plots, the former was severely damaged. Several Chalcids were bred from infested material. The control methods of uprooting and burning of plants had the disadvantage of destroying any parasites that may be present. A cage covered with fine muslin would permit the parasites to escape, while retaining the flies. [THH]
