    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

The most serious borers of cultivated sugar-cane in Java were the striped borer, Proceras sacchariphagus Bojer, and the shining borer, Chilotraea auricilia Dudg. Other common ones were the grey borer, Argyroploce schistaceana Sn., and the purple borer, Sesamia inferens Walk. The first two almost exclusively tunnelled in young weak internodes and diminished their yield of sugar. They diminished the weight of younger internodes and the sucrose content of older internodes, even if they were not themselves infested. Infestation was assessed by the percentage of visibly infested parts. Few canes had to be checked and the method was reasonably accurate in the field.

Infestation varied between clones, and was higher with heavier N dressings and with rapidly growing good cane. It was probably associated with rind hardness and fibre content.

Control with insecticides was effective, especially if concentrated on the youngest leaves.
