Mitigation of Western Corn Rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) by Maize Varietal Selection
Maize parent material was assessed by the resistance of its root system to plucking. Highly productive hybrids created from this base were used to identify advanced hybrids that are most tolerant to infestation by western corn rootworm.
