Abstract:

For more than fifty years the sugar planters have known of this beetle injuring sugarcane, and the center of heaviest infestations appears to have been constantly in or around St. Mary Parish. There has been considerable question as to the amount of damage really done. Experimental work conducted at Franklin, Louisiana in 1930 shows that the destruction of the original mother stalk only in each stool would result in a decrease in yield of about 25% and a loss in sugar production of about $35.00 per acre.
