LEITE, Germano L.D. et al. Intensity of attacks of thrips, purple blotch and gray mold on onion cultivars. Hortic. Bras. [online]. 2004, vol.22, n.1, pp. 151-153. ISSN 0102-0536. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-05362004000100032.
The intensity of attack of T. tabaci and incidence of Alternaria porri (Ellis) Cif and Botrytis squamosa J.C. Walker in nine onion cultivars [Aurora, Primavera, CNPH 6400, Crioula Alto-Vale, Vale-Ouro (IPA 11), Franciscana (IPA-16), Piraouro, Conquista and Serrana] was evaluated, in an experiment in randomized blocks design, with five replications. Weekly evaluations were done from the transplanting until harvesting date, in ten plants/parcel of the number of T. tabaci on the leaves, the percentage of damaged foliar area from the first expanded leaf up and the presence or absence of injuries caused by A. porri and B. squamosa. The cv. Franciscana was more resistant to the attack of T. tabaci in comparison to the other onion cultivars. There was no significant difference between cvs for A. porri and Botrytis squamosa resistance. T. tabaci and A. porri were influenced positively and negatively by temperature and relative humidity, respectively.
