Abstract: The significantly shorter incubation period (4.17 days), larval-pupal period (22.21 days) and higher growth index (3.22) was recorded when C. chinensis reared on kabuli gram. The significantly lower egg hatch (80.00 per cent), growth index (1.71) and higher larvalpupal period (27.53 days) was observed when C. chinensis reared on kidney bean. The significantly higher life-cycle duration in male (32.05 days), female (32.29 days) and in general (32.17 days) was recorded on kidney bean and significantly lower life-cycle duration in male (26.31 days), female (26.45 days) and in general (26.38 days) was found on kabuli gram. The significantly lowest percentage of adult emergence in male (26.00 per cent), female (29.00 per cent) and in general (55.00 per cent) was recorded on kidney bean. The significantly highest per cent adult emergence in male (41.00 per cent), female (44.00 per cent) and in general (85.00 per cent) found when C. chinensis reared on kabuli gram. The significantly highest longevity in male (8.82 days), female (8.70 days) and in general (8.76 days) was recorded when C. chinensis reared on kabuli gram. The significantly highest number of eggs (100.00 eggs) were laid by female of C. chinensis when reared on kabuli gram and lowest (64.96 eggs) by female when reared on kidney bean. The net reproductive rate (Rq) of C. chinensis was 42.05, 31.34,33.74 and 17.64 females per female per generation on kabuli gram, white tur, red tur and kidney bean, respectively. The mean length of generation (T) was maximum (33.76 days) on kidney bean and minimum (31.40 days) on white tur. On the basis of (rm) values the descending order of food grains for C. chinensis was kabuli gram (0.1164), red tur (0.1120), white tur (0.1097) and kidney bean (0.085). The finite rate of increase in numbers (X) was 1.30, 1.28, 1.29 and 1.21 females per female per day on kabuli gram, white tur, red tur and kidney bean, respectively. On the basis of overall suitability of different pulses this indicated that kabuli gram was found to be most suitable for growth and multiplication of C. chinensis while, kidney bean was observed to be less suitable for the development of pulse beetle C. chinensis.
