Plutella xylostella (L.) (diamondback moth) caterpillars took longer to develop into adults on some potential trap crop plant species compared to others and tocauliflower, 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.
