Soluble and cell wall bound phenolic-mediated insect resistance in corn and sorghum.

Al-Idrissi. Ramputh
This thesis examined the role of phenolic substances in resistance to insect pests of maize and sorghum. Eight landraces of sorghum collected in Ethiopia were assessed for methanol soluble phenolic content (as catechin equivalents) by the Prussian blue procedure and storage insect resistance in standardized tests with Sitophilus oryzae and were found to show significant variation by genotype. Significant inverse linear relationships were also found between resistance parameters such as weight loss of grain, the...
