A possible source of resistance to the weevil Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky, 1855, in maize (Zea mays L.)



Bragantia 37: 17-24



ISSN/ISBN: 0006-8705

The variety Acre suffered much less damage to the ear from S. zeamais than any of six hybrids and synthetics which were used as controls. This variety is of flint type, with more compact husks than the others, and the husks extend well beyond the tip of the ear.
