Field Work Evaluating Toxic and Repellent Compounds in Switchgrass and Corn for Rootworm Larvae
Plant Genetics Research
Project Number: 5070-21220-008-05
Start Date: Feb 01, 2014
End Date: Jan 31, 2017
Toxic and repellent compounds in switchgrass and corn for rootworm larvae will be identified by cooperators using western corn rootworm larvae that we provide. We will then evaluate their activity in field tests.
Insect rearing and field evaluations will be conducted using standard techniques long established in ARS.
