Effect of insect infestation on stored grain. III. Studies on kafflr corn (Sorghum vulgare)



Effect of insect infestation on stored grain. III. Studies on kafflr corn (Sorghum vulgare)



J. Sci. Fd Agric, London 9(12): 837-839



In this part of a series recording experiments carried out in India, an account is given of a test in which sorghum grain stored in bags was infested with Calandra oryzae (L.) and examined at monthly intervals for five months, in comparison with uninfested samples. The results showed that the weevils caused a heavy loss in weight of the grain.
