Abstract:Biotypes of Hessian flies, Mayetiola destructor (Say), collected from wheat, Triticum aestivum (L.), in four North Central Texas locations were determined in 1986 and 1987. During 1986 the Great Plains A and C biotypes were found to be most prevalent in Hessian fly populations, whereas in 1987 the A, C, and F biotypes were most common. Results from biotype experiments and infestation ratings of wheat lines from the Uniform Hessian Fly Nursery in 1986-1988 indicated that while all genes for Hessian fly resistance provided protection from infestation, the H., H7H., and HI2genes were the least effective for use in Texas.
