Author(s): Ankit Kushwaha, Ram Singh Umrao, Abhishek Yadav, Umesh Gupta and Arushi Yadav
Abstract: The screening of maize germplasm/varieties against maize pink stem borer, Sesamia inferens, was carried out during 2020-2021 in oil seed farm, Kalyanpur and insectary department of entomology, C. S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology Kanpur, 208002. Geographical location of Kanpur district falls at 26.29° North longitude and 80.18 °C East longitude at an altitude of 125.9 m from the sea level. All the 36 germplasm/varieties were categorized into five different groups that Resistant, moderately resistant, moderately susceptible, susceptible, highly susceptible group. Azad PC-3 demonstrates higher resistance, while GP 20-1 exhibits greater susceptibility to the pink stem borer, Sesamia inferens.
