Studies on the Sorghum Shootfly in China
As an important measure for increasing grain production, hybrid sorghum has been cultivated in the whole area of the Peoples Republic of China since 1970. Over the past 10 years the sorghum shootfly has gradually become the worst pest of sorghum in several places in the southern parts of China. In 1973, some regions of Gung Dong, Gui Chou and Gung Xi Provinces were affected by the shootfly with a rate of 30% for the heavier damage, and a few even exceeding 90%.
