Impact of Tobacco Thrips on Cowpea

P. McLeod and T. Rashid

October 2012

Research

In the southern US, seedling cowpeas are severely injured by the tobacco thrips. Although damage from thrips feeding on foliage is common and appears substantial, recent studies have demonstrated little impact on cowpea yield. The objective of the research reported herein was to determine the impact of F. fusca feeding during the seedling stage on cowpea yield.
