Technical Abstract: Eleven fall armyworm-resistant maize populations and 11 corn earworm-resistant maize inbred lines were evaluated in 2004 and 2005 for their resistance to three major insect pests (i.e., the fall armyworm, the corn earworm, and maize weevil) in the southeastern coastal plain region. Both field screening and laboratory bioassay were used in this study. The possibility of developing multiple pest-resistant corn germplasm was also discussed.
