The European corn borer, ECB, (Ostrinia nubilalis, Hubner) and ear molds (Fusarium spps. in particular F. graminearum Schwabe) are important pests throughout the Northern corn belt of North America.

Modes(s) of entry, mechanisms of tolerance or resistance, degree of reasonable tolerance vis a vis effects on yield, lodging, grain quality, and source of genetic variability are key long-term steps towards a satisfactory solution.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
