The Russian wheat aphid, Diuraphis noxia (Kurdjumov) (Hemiptera: Aphididae), devastates wheat and barley production on all continents except Australia. Although D. noxia-resistant cultivars exist, virulent D. noxia populations exist in Asia, North America, and South America that have the ability to overcome resistance. In this study, synthetic hexaploid(More)
Several greenhouse experiments were used to measure how high levels of antibiosis resistance to nymphs in two interspecific Brachiaria (brachiariagrass) hybrids affect life history parameters of the spittlebugs Aeneolamia varia (F.) and Zulia carbonaria (Lallemand), two of the most important spittlebug (Hemiptera: Cercopidae) species affecting Brachiaria(More)
The Russian wheat aphid, Diuraphis noxia (Kurdjumov) (Hemiptera: Aphididae), is an important pest in the western Great Plains of the United States, where it causes hundreds of millions of dollars of losses to barley and wheat production through reduced yields. Experiments to evaluate the effect of early planting and resistance in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)(More)
