Progress of host plant resistance research to the Asiatic corn borer in the Philippines - Mexico, DF (Mexico) CIMMYT : 1997 - Printed
The Asiatic Corn Borer (ACB), Ostrinia furnacalis (Guenee), remains the most serious insect pest of maize in the Philippines and parts of Tropical Asia. Advances in ACB resistance work have been obtained through an increase in information and materials, that have served as bases for future activities. Several hybrid varieties with resistance or tolerance to ACB were developed and released from 1992 to 1993. Possible genetic differentiation was identified in the local populations of ACB. Collaborative work with CIMMYT-ARMP was started in 1990 on the development of Asian Multiple Borer Resistant populations of maize.
