Abstract:

A trial was carried out to evaluate the grain sorghum varieties for their reaction to major pests in advanced varietal experiment during kharif 2015 at All India Coordinated Sorghum Improvement Project, Sorghum Research Unit, Dr. PDKV, Akola. Nine sorghum varieties along with ten checks were screened for their reaction against shootfly, stem bore and aphids in randomized block design. The sorghum entry SPV 2296 expressed lowest shoot fly dead heart but not on par to resistant checks. The lines having low seedling glossiness score had positive highly significant (0.922) impact on shootfly dead hearts. The stem borer leaf injury rating and aphid damage score observed in the scale 1 to 9 each and were at low level. The association of stem borer leaf injury rating and aphid damage score with seedling glossiness was not significant and positively significant, respectively.
