    , 'Globe Master' and 'Scarlet Ohara', respectively. Mean generation time was the longest on cabbage cultivar 'Globe Master'. The respective descending order of intrinsic rates of population increase was on cauliflower, cabbage cultivar 'Globe Master', kohlrabi, cabbage cultivar 'Scarlet Ohara' and canola. Cauliflower and cabbage cultivar 'Globe Master' were recognized as the most suitable host plants for DBM.
