Abstract

A diet designed to serve as a larval initiation medium for Mediterranean fruit fly rearing was developed at the FAO/IAEA pilot plant at Seibersdorf, Austria. We report on the evaluation and transfer of larval starter diet and re-processed diet technologies under large-scale operations at the mass-production facility of San Miguel Petapa, Guatemala.
