Sorghum midge (Stenodiplosis sorghicola) is a serious insect pest of grain sorghum in Australia.It can result not only in major damage, but also requires several repeat insecticide applications during the season. Costs from residual losses and uncontrolled damage are estimated at being up to $10 million annually. Management of this pest is now centred on growing midge resistant hybrids.
