Technical Abstract: A team of state and federal scientists from Kansas State University, the University of Nebraska, Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University, and the Agricultural Research Service's Northern Grain Insect Research Laboratory and Plant Science and Water Conservation Research Laboratory, are conducting collaborative research on the greenbug, Schizaphis graminum, ,in the Southern Great Plains. Their research mission is to permanently reduce the greenbug's pest status on sorghum to below economic thresholds. The research program will combine the disciplines of host plant resistance, biological control, genetics, and molecular biology, to develop an integrated crop management approach for controlling the greenbug.
