Plutella xylostella (L.) (diamondback moth) caterpillars took longer to develop into adults on some potential trap crop plant species compared to others and to cauliflower, a standard main crop plant. Although the number of adults that developed was similar on all plants tested, those plants on which development times were delayed could possibly still act as ‘dead-end’ trap crops for this pest.
