Abstract:

This study was carried out at Maize field of AICRP on Maize, Central farm, OUAT, Bhubaneswar during kharif 2014 and kharif 2015. The experiment comprised of 15 numbers of popular cultivars of maize viz. MRM 3777, DMH 7705, DKC9117, VIVEK HYBRID-9, VIVEK QPM-9, NMH-1247, NK-30, BIO 9681, BIO 9637, CORN S 6217, ASMH 177, HM-4, HQPM-1, HQPM -5 and DKC 8101. Among all the cultivars NK-30, Bio 9681 and ASMH 777 cultivars recorded resistant. DKC 9117, VIVEK HYBRID-9, NMH 1247, BIO9637, CORN S 6217 and DKC-8101 cultivars recorded moderately resistant. Cultivars MRM 3777, VIVEK QPM- 9, HM-4, HQPM-5 and HQPM-1 recorded susceptible. Maximum leaf scraping and pinhole per cent recorded in cultivar HQPM-1(27.43%). Dead heart formation recorded in screening experiment after thirty and forty five days of germination. Maximum dead heart formation recorded in HQPM-1(28.20%) after forty five days of germination followed by Vivek QPM-9 andHQPM-5. Where minimum dead heart formation recorded in NK-30. Leaf injury rating (LIR) recorded in thirty and forty five days germination. Minimum leaf injury rating(LIR) recorded in NK-30 with 1.89 scale and maximum leaf injury recorded in HQPM-1 with 8.91 scale.


Keywords: Maize stem borer, Cultivars, artificial infestation, leaf injury rating and dead heart
