Sitophilus zeamais Motsch. is one of the most important pests of sorghum in storage causing severe economic damage to the grain. Twenty-one sorghum varieties obtained from Haramaya University Sorghum Improvement Research Program were investigated for their relative resistance to S. zeamais attack. The Dobie index of susceptibility was used to group the varieties into different reaction categories. Among the twenty one sorghum varieties evaluated, only one variety, ‘WB-77’, was regarded as… CONTINUE READING
