Feeding 4 levels of nutrients with 4 levels of streptomycin and 4 levels of potassium sorbate, respectively, to larvae of Agria affinis auct. nec Fallen showed that effects of both antimicrobial agents on growth, development, and survival depend upon the concentration of the agents and upon the nutrient level. without either streptomycin or potassium sorbate the rate of growth, development, and survival were the same on all levels of nutrients. with increasing levels of either streptomycin or potassium sorbate in the diet, the rates of growth, development, and survival decreased. However, these effects decreased with increasing levels of nutrients.
