Abstract

Thrips (Thrips tabaci) are an important pest on cabbage, in organic as well as conventional cultivation.Although large differences in susceptibility to thrips damage occur among cultivated varieties it is not clear if this is due to variation in resistance (affecting the thrips population) or tolerance (affecting symptom development upon thrips feeding). Also, little is known about plant traits affecting resistance or tolerance.
