Abstract/Contents:"The black cutworm is a serious pest of golf course putting greens and tees, consequently multiple insecticide applications are typically required to manage this important pest. In an effort to reduce pesticide use, University of Wisconsin scientists initiated an investigation to identify plant defense mechanism(s) of Kentucky bluegrass that are responsible for inherent resistance to black cutworm. The study's findings include: Plant morphological characteristics of Kentucky bluegrasses likely plays an important role in resistance to black cutworm Turfgrass leaf tissue toughness affects development and survival of black cutworm larvae. Leaf toughness varies among turfgrass type and plant age. Older Kentucky bluegrass leaves are measurably tougher than younger. leaves Leaf toughness, neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent fiber (ADF), and cellulose have a negative affect weight gain of black cutworm larvae."
