The Study of Resistance to Aphids in Crop Plants
Problem Addressed: Insect resistance in crop plants
Key Findings: Progress has been made on the practical use of resistance to aphids in the release to Kansas farmers of corn hybrid Kansas 1859, Ladak alfalfa, and Dicktoo barley, each resistant to a different aphid species. These are being used in plant breeding and give promise of eventual production of insect resistant varieties.

In the use of plant resistance to insects we are concerned with any inherited characteristic of the plant that limits the population of the insect or reduces the damage done.
