Objectives of the Meeting

  • bring together representatives of research groups studying the behavior of Helicoverpa armigera Hubner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and other lepidopteran pests; share existing knowledge on the host selection behavior of Helicoverpa armigera with special reference to pigeonpea and chickpea;

  • summarize the present status of knowledge on the biochemical and biophysical characters that deter Helicoverpa armigera from ovipositing and feeding on pigeonpea/chickpea plants showing good levels of host-plant resistance i.e., resistance markers for plant breeding programs;

  • list the research needs and priorities for future research on the host selection behavior of Helicoverpa armigera and on the mechanisms of host-plant resistance to this pest in pigeonpea and chickpea;

  • identify responsibilities for the research, training, collaborative links, and necessary funding for this multi-disciplinary project.
