Differences in Susceptibility of Certain Sunflower Varieties and Hybrids to the Sunflower Moth
Tests conducted at McGregor, Texas, in 1967 indicated that hybrid sunflowers T 66001 (S-37-388T2 × HA 28), T 64001 (S-37-388T2 × HA 6 & 43), and T 56002 (S-37-388TI × HA 6 & 43) and Russian varieties ‘Armavirec’ and ‘Kubannec’ were damaged less serverely by larvae of the sunflower moth. Homoeosoma electellum (Hulst); than the inbred line HA 6 and varieties ‘Smena,’ ‘Vostok,’ ‘VNIIMK 8931,’ and ‘Peredovik’.
Similar tests in 1968 indicated that 2 hybrids, T 56002 and P-21 ms × HA 60, and the variety Armavirec were damaged less severely by sunflower moth larvae than ‘Valley’ (CM90RR × Peredovik), Peredovik, VNIIMK 8931, Smena and ‘Krasnodarets.’
In 1969, P-21 ms × HA 60, Peredovik, and Krasnodarets were less severely damaged than Smena.
