Susceptibility of sweet potato Ipomoea batatas (L.) (Lam.) cultivars to attack by the weevil Cylas formicarius var. elegantulus (Summers)



Susceptibility of sweet potato Ipomoea batatas (L.) (Lam.) cultivars to attack by the weevil Cylas formicarius var. elegantulus (Summers)



Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 74(2): 167-179



In two field experiments, one carried out in Isabela and one in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, the total yield of sweet potato cultivars was not significantly affected by the damage caused by Cylas formicarius elegantulus. In Isabela, WRAS-3, WRAS-7, WRAS-31, WRAS-36, Mojave and Gem were highly susceptible to attacks by the apionid, whereas Regal, Sumor and WRAS-27 were moderately susceptible.
