Relative resistance of some varieties of maize to attack by Sitophilus zeamais (Mots.)



Relative resistance of some varieties of maize to attack by Sitophilus zeamais (Mots.)



Report, Nigerian Stored Products Research Institute: 79-82



Twelve varieties of maize comprising those imported into Nigeria for breeding work and improved varieties already introduced to farmers were investigated for their relative resistance to attack by the stored-product pest Sitophilus zeamais Motsch. Resistance was measured in terms of percentage weight loss and percentage seed damage during storage for 5 months. It was found that the most resistant of the 12 were the varieties 096EP6, NS-1 and EAFR0231, followed by H-507, Bulk 3 and Lagos white.
