Abstract:Leaves of a Kentucky red clover, No. 101, and an Italian red clover were tested as to resistance to needle puncturing. It was found from puncturing 500 leaves of each clover that the Kentucky clover offered greater resistance to puncturing than the Italian clover. The Kentucky clover is more resistant to leafhopper injury than the Italian clover. Since the insect feeds by puncturing plant tissue, it is thought that this greater resistance to leafhopper injury is due, in part at least. to greater resistance to puncturing.
