A study was made to correlate the known resistance to Fiji disease and resistance to Perkinsiella saccharicida Kirkaldy in 5 clones of Hawaiian sugarcane. Clone H51-8194, which is resistant to Fiji disease, showed strong resistance to this leafhopper since none of the leafhoppers (N=90) developed to adulthood on this variety. However, on clone H60-5657, which is also resistant to Fiji disease, no resistance to the leafhopper was observed, suggesting that Fiji disease resistance ratings are not correlated with leafhopper resistance. Also, 2 methods of evaluating leafhopper resistance were evaluated and results showed that potted plants were superior to an excised leaf method.
