Effect of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, total sugar and moisture content on the incidence of the early shoot borer, Chilo infuscatellus Snellen in sugarcane [Full subscriber]

Study on the effect of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and total sugars on the incidence of early shoot borer (ESB), Chilo infuscatellus Snellen (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in four least susceptible, four moderately susceptible and four highly susceptible sugarcane genotypes was carried out at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Anakapalle, Andhra Pradesh, India during 2009-2010. Least susceptible (LS) genotypes (98 A 125, Co 0110, Co 6806 & 98 A 165) had significantly lower N, higher P and K, and lower sugar contents in shoots at 60 days after planting compared with genotypes that were highly susceptible (HS) to ESB. Further, LS genotypes also had…
