Infestation of Semilooper in Castor Crop
Infestation may be seen in early or late sown castor crops. Small caterpillars scrape off the epidermal layer of the leaves. While larger larvae defoliate the crops, leaving the primary veins of the leaves. They can also harm the spikes and seeds of the castor. Adults suck juice from citrus family crops. It can also suck the juice from the cotton bolls sometimes.
