Resistance of sorghum grain to maize weevil Sitophilus zeamais Motsch



Resistance of sorghum grain to maize weevil Sitophilus zeamais Motsch



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 41(7): 2469B-2470B



Of 169 exotic converted lines whose grain was screened for resistance to S. zeamais, SC0331 and SC0233 were the most resistant and SC006, SC0224, SC0226 and SCO311 showed resistance, based on the low number of egg plugs and emerged progeny in free-choice tests and the high percentage of parent mortality and low numbers of emerged progeny in the no-choice tests.
