Abstract/Contents:"Overwintered chinch bug females reared on susceptible varieties of sorghum developed faster, lived longer, laid more eggs, and had a lower mortality than those reared on resistant varieties. Chinch bug resistance was decreased by the addition of sodium nitrate and increased with the addition of superphosphate in pot and field experiments. Experiments conducted on chinch bug populations in St. Augustinegrass showed that an organic source of nitrogen resulted in lower chinch bug populations and lower levels of damage to the turf when compared to an inorganic source of nitrogen. Chinch bug responses to highly available nitrogen may be due to a preference for lush turf, or biological regulation effects such as mortality and oviposition rates."
