Assessment of losses in grain yield due to earhead insect pests of sorghum



Assessment of losses in grain yield due to earhead insect pests of sorghum



Uttar Pradesh Journal of Zoology 25(3): 291-293



An experiment was conducted in Rajasthan, India, during the 1999 kharif season to assess the losses in sorghum grain yield due to Heliothis armigera Euproctis subnotata and Contarinia sorghicola (Stenodiplosis sorghicola). The losses in grain yield varied from 11.54 to 30.91% in different paired plots with a mean of 18.83%.
