Technical Abstract: We sought and found some highly resistant sources of forage sorghum to the sugarcane aphid. From the approximately 30 lines that evaluated, six expressed high resistance to the sugarcane aphid, and these included both non-preference and antibiosis forms of resistance based on the types of experiments that we conducted. Two of the lines are parental and will help with breeding programs in developing a broader base lines that can be used in diverse of environments.
