Description: Herbivory by Thrips tabaci (Lindeman) affects both the bulb yield and phytohormone balance in its major host plant, the onion (Alium cepa L.). Seasonal changes in the susceptibility of onion yield to T. tabaci feeding were examined during the three growth stages of onion; prebulbing, bulbing and sizing (Kendall & Capinera 1987). The prebulbing stage is characterized by rapid leaf initiation. Increased bulb size and decreased leaf initiation occurs during bulbing. Further bulb growth and collapse of the leaf bundle characterizes the sizing stage.
