Abstract

The whitefly (WF) Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) is considered one of the major pests for several vegetables cultivated under greenhouse conditions. It affects plant growth, transmits geminiviruses and reduces crop quality. This study was conducted at MARDI Serdang with an aim to determine the population abundance of B. tabaci at different growth stages of chilli (Capsicum annuum. var MC11), brinjal (Solanummelongena. var MTe1), tomato (Solanumlycopersicum. varMT1), and okra (Abelmoschusesculentus. var MKBE1) under glasshouse condition (30-36°C, 60 - 80% RH). Results of the study showed that the populations of adults B. tabaci were significantly (P< 0.05) higher at the older growth stage (75 days) after germination compared to the middle growth stage (60 days) and younger growth stage (45 days) of chilli. Similar results were seen on tomato and okra, but a higher populationwas observed at the middle and younger growth stages compared with the older growth stage of brinjal.
