Several canola cultivars (Acropolis, GA96038A, Jetton, Wichita, Plainsman and Explorer) were assessed for their responses to infestations by cabbage seedpod weevils in the field. The study was conducted at Alabama A&M University's Winfred Thomas Agricultural Research Station during 2001-02 growing season. The test cultivars were previously selected for their superior agronomic performance under Alabama conditions. Responses of canola cultivars to cabbage seedpod weevil were measured in terms of yield and seedpod damage index.
Species 1: Coleoptera Curculionidae Ceutorrhynchus obstrictus (cabbage seedpod weevil)
Species 2: Capparales Brassicaceae Brassica napus (canola)
Keywords: canola cultivars, damage index yield
