Despite plant resistance constituting one of the major defences of South African sugarcane against the stalk borer, Eldana saccharina Walker (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) (Leslie and Keeping, 1996; Keeping, 1999; Keeping and Govender, 2002), little has been published regarding the mechanisms upon which this resistance is based. This paper reviews published and unpublished information on this subject, in an attempt to synthesise our understanding of the major resistance mechanisms against E… CONTINUE READING
