Abstract

Field screening of elite soybean (Glycine max) lines for resistance to leaf miner (Aproaerema modicella) and stem fly (Melanagromyza sojae).

Abstract

Forty-one elite soyabean (G. max) lines were screened for resistance to leaf miner (A. modicella) and stem fly (M. sojae) during the rainy season of 1998 in Maharasthra, India, together with 5 control cultivars. Cultivar NRC 41 was highly resistant to leaf miner, while 11 lines were resistant to stem fly. Cultivars NRC 41, JS 92-22, JS (SH) 93-01 and the control cultivar MACS 124 showed resistance to both insects.
