Abstract:Laboratory and field tests were conducted to determine the resistance mechanisms of twoCucurbita moschata( Poir. cultivars ('Calabaza' and 'Butternut') to pickle-worm, Diaphania nitidalis (Stoll), and melon-worm, Diaphania hyalinata (L.). Antibiosis to pickleworm was found in whole fruits of 'Calabaza.' However, the principal mechanism to both species by the two C. moschata cultivars was oviposition nonpreference.
