Resistance of sweet potato cultivars to African sweet potato weevil



Resistance of sweet potato cultivars to African sweet potato weevil



Crop Science 21(4): 499-503



Of two orange-fleshed and 18 white-fleshed cultivars evaluated in the field for resistance to Cylas puncticollis, TIS3053 and TIS3030 had the least root damage whereas TIS2532, TIS3017 and TIS3030 showed the least shoot damage.
