TWO RELATIVELY new key species in Louisiana that conform to the plant stress hypothesis are the Mexican rice borer, Eoreuma loftini (Dyar) and the sugarcane aphid, Melanaphis sacchari (Zehntner). High performance liquid chromatography differentiated insect resistant and susceptible sugarcane cultivars based on nutritional profiles involving free amino acids (FAAs). For E. loftini susceptible cultivar LCP 85384, concentrations of essential and nonessential FAAs in whole leaf tissue samples were… CONTINUE READING
