Out of eight kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) cultivars assessed under field conditions against
spiral borer (Agrilus acutus Thumb.), two were rated resistant, one was moderately
resistant, three were moderately susceptible and two were susceptible. Among the hybrids
progenies one was rated resistant, two were moderately resistant, one was moderately
susceptible, two were susceptible and one was highly susceptible. Among resistant cultivars
and hybrids, differences in mean gall length were insignificant, however, in percent
infestation and mean percent damage (APD), the differences were significant.
