Abstract

In Puerto Rico there is increasing interest in Crotalaria juncea as a cover crop for soil improvement, weed and nematode suppression, and seed production. As more area is sown with Crotalaria juncea, pests have been appearing in relatively large abundance in this plant. Commonly occurring undesirable animals feeding on leaves, pods and seeds of organically grown Crotalaria juncea in Lajas and Isabela, Puerto Rico, include the green iguana {Iguana iguana), beetles (species of Cerotoma and Diabrotica) and the pod borers Utetheisa bella and Utetheisa ornatrix.
