Rapid selection of sweet potato ipomoea batatas lines resistant to the sweet potato weevil cylas formicarius elegantulus



Rapid selection of sweet potato ipomoea batatas lines resistant to the sweet potato weevil cylas formicarius elegantulus



Hortscience 15(1): 70-71



A laboratory method based on adult feeding punctures was developed to rapidly evaluate cultivars and breeding lines of sweet potatoes I. batatas (L.) Lam for resistance to the sweetpotato weevil, C. f. elegantulus (Summers). Promising resistant lines can be identified, and the amount of field testing required to develop resistant lines is reduced. Preliminary data indicate that varying levels of resistance exist in sweetpotato.
