Champ, B. (1960) Technical notes. Cabbage pest control investigations, 1954. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 17 (1). pp. 59-65.



Cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.), cauliflower (B. oleracea var. botrytis L.) and related crops form a large part of vegetable plantings in south-eastern Queensland during autumn, winter and spring. There have been
few instances where marketable crops have been harvested without some form of insect control, and attention to pests has become routine. Important insect pests are cabbage white butterfly, Pieris rapae L., cabbage moth, Plutella maculipennis Curt., and cabbage centre-grub, Hellula undalis (F.); pests of minor importance are cabbage aphid, Brevicoryne brassicae (L.), and cabbage leaf-miner, Liriomyza cruciferarum Her.
