Abstract

The cabbage seedpod weevil–Ceutorhynchus assimilis (Paykull)–in 1950, caused losses to the Brussels sprouts seed crop in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties ranging from 14% to 54%. On broccoli seed at Watsonville one field suffered a 6% loss from the weevil. On cabbage north of Salinas one field had less than 1% loss.
