Abstract

Fifteen maize genotypes were evaluated for resistance to the maize stalk borer, Busseola fusca. Three Mississippi inbred lines resistant to the south-western corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella (Dyar) and the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Smith) viz Mp705, Mp706 and Mp707 exhibited pronounced antibiosis to larvae of B. fusca.
