The European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Hubner), is a major pest of maize, Zea mays L., in Central Europe. The resistance of 8 early maturing commercial maize hybrids and 6 experimental hybrids against European corn borer was assessed during 1996 and 1997 in Germany. Resistance was evaluated by yield reduction and damage ratings under natural and manual infestation in 11 or 6 environments, respectively. The infestation level of European corn borer was assessed by the percentage of damaged… CONTINUE READING
