Abstract

The 1994 Symposium on Armyworms (previously Fall Armyworm Symposium) at the Southeastern Branch of the Entomological Society of America is dedicated to "Dr. Robert L. Burton and Mr. E. A. Harrell: Experts in Insect Rearing." Dr. Burton, an entomologist (1964-1970), and Mr. E. A. Harrell, an agricultural engineer (1961-1980), were employed by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service at the Southern Grains Insects Research Laboratory at Tifton, GA. The systems they developed provided the means by which the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith), could be reared in mass numbers on a meridic diet that resulted in quality eggs, larvae, pupae, and adult insects. /// El Simposio de 1994 sobre los Gusanos Trozadores (previamente Simposio sobre los Gusanos Trozadores de Otoño) en la Rama Sureste de la Sociedad Entomológica de América estuvo dedicado al tema "Dr. Robert L. Burton y Sr. E. A. Harrel: Expertos en Cría de Insectos". El Dr. Burton, entomólogo (1964-1970), y el Sr. E. A. Harrel, ingeniero agrónomo (1961-1980), fueron empleados del Servicio de Investigación Agrícola del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos, en el Laboratorio Sur de Investigación de Insectos de los Granos en Tifton, Georgia. Los sistemas que ellos desarrollaron posibilitaron la cría masiva del gusano trozador, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith), en una dieta merídica que tuvo como resultado la producción de huevos, larvas, pupas e insectos adultos de calidad.
