Inheritance of resistance to head bugs and its interaction with grain molds in Sorghum bicolor

Abstract

Sorghum head bug, Calocoris angustatus Lethiery is one of the most important pests of grain sorghum in India. Head bug damage increases the severity of grain molds, which renders the grain unfit for human consumption. Therefore, we studied the gene action for resistance to head bugs and grain molds in a diverse array of male-sterile lines and testers in a… (More)
