Bulletin of Entomology New Delhi 1989; 28(2): 159-161

A note on the incidence of seed corn maggot, Delia platura Meigen (Anthomyiidae: Diptera) in spring sown maize

Delia platura was observed damaging germinating spring maize seed in Uttar Pradesh, India, in 1982. This was the first record of this pest attacking maize in India. A screening trial with 8 varieties was carried out, and infestation ranged from 33.3% in Tarun to 88.9% in Ganga. The average number of larvae per seed ranged from 0.7 in Tarun to 6.3 in Ganga 5.
