Abstract:

Angoumois grain moth (AGM), Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier), a storage grain pest, is responsible for great damage on seeds, causing weight loss, reduced nutrient content, and loss of viability. This study determined the correlation between levels of AGM storage infestation and seed performance of different rice genotypes.
