• Response of Forage Grasses to Rhodesgrass Scale

      Schuster, M. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-09-01)
      Yields of 38 species of native and introduced grasses were found to be significantly reduced by scale infestation. Grasses are grouped into three classes: (1) grasses with reduced yields, (2) grasses infested but not affected and (3) resistant grasses. Twenty-eight new hosts of rhodesgrass scale are recorded. The data indicated that rhodesgrass scale is of economic importance in south Texas.
