Abstract/Contents:Details a research project conducted to "identify and characterize the resistance potential of commercially available cultivars of St. Augustinegrass and experimental hybrids of both St. Augustinegrass and Zoysiagrass to the tropical sod webworm." Mentions that "commercial cultivars and hybrids of St. Augustinegrass were evaluated for resistance to the tropical sod webworm." States that "in the test with zoysiagrass hybrids, none of the grasses provided a significant level of mortality of the confined larvae in the no-choice lab test." Reports that "larvae that require much longer to pass through their growth stages will be smaller, consume less leaf tissue and even more importantly, they are available over a much longer period of time and available to parasitism and predation by their natural enemies and pathogens."
