AbstractThe sweet potato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) continues to be a serious pest of cotton and an important vector of several virus diseases of fall vegetables. In our search for germplasm resistant to the whitefly, we observed that okra-leaf selections of ST-8701N and ST-8737N had fewer adult whiteflies. La Okra 5-5 had fewer whiteflies than the normal-leaf Stoneville 213. Thus, okra-leaf selections appear to offer some resistance to the whitefly.
