Fig. 1.

Larval and Pupal weights and larval length (Means±SE) of H. armigera in response to feeding on different host plants and artificial diet, Pupal weight and larval length are not significant at P > 0.05.

Fig. 2.

Percent larval survivorship (Means±SE) of H. armigera in response to feeding on different host plants and artificial diet same letters representing the bars are not significant according to Tukey (HSD) test at P > 0.05.

Fig. 3.

Variations among morphological character measurements (cm2/cm) (Means±SE) of H. armigera adults in response to feeding on different host plants and artificial diet (Treatments showed significance only for tibia length and areas of fore wing and hind wing at P < 0.001).
