The Sorghum Checkoff recently released the Defense Against the Sugarcane Aphid booklet in order to provide more information to growers. The goal of the document is to assist growers in effectively managing the pest to avoid yield and revenue loss. The 20-page document covers topics from identifying the aphid and its effects to scouting techniques and when to treat.
The table below lists those sorghum hybrids that have been identified over the last two years that have tolerance to the sugarcane aphid based on university and other independent trials. All of the hybrids listed are being marketed by their respective seed companies as sugarcane aphid tolerant. This is not a complete list and companies may be promoting additional hybrids as sugarcane aphid tolerant. Only those hybrids that have been identified by a third party have been included here.
