A note on the likely areas of establishment of Japanese beetle (Popillia Japonica, Newman) in India
A climatological study to delineate the areas favourable for the establishment and multiplication of the Japanese beetle shows that the most favourable meteorological conditions for the beetle would obtain in some parts of north Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir. A longer activity period from May to August may be expected in India while it is only two months in U.S.A. and European countries. The adult feeding period can extend from April to October and hence several generations can be produced. Thus the pest would pose a serious threat to orchard plantations in northwest India.
