ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the study conducted by the authors related to the involvement of the basal area of maize internodes in borer resistance. It states that the to elucidate the role of the length of the internode basal ring (LIBR) in resistance to the Mediterranean corn borer (MCB), the authors carried out a divergent selection program to modify the LIBR using two maize synthetic varieties (EPS20 and EPS21), each with a different genetic background.
