Screening Aid
The stem borers, Chilo spp. , are some of the most important pests
of cereal crops throughout Asia. Larvae cause serious damage to
rice, corn, sorghum, and sugar-cane by boring into the leaf funnels
during the seedling growth stage (causing “dead-heart”) and late\
r
by feeding on internal stem tissue and inflorescences during the
reproductive growth stage. Feeding by Chilo larvae can result in
significant reduction in yields...
