    populations, ESALQ-VD opaque and Piranão-VD opaque, were evaluated for resistance to Heliothis zea [Helicoverpa zeahelicoverpa zeaSubject Category: Organism Names

    ] and other agronomic characters. Genetic variability was observed for most characteristics in ESALQ-VD, including 2 associated with resistance: husk extension and compaction. Husk extension was negatively correlated with ear and grain weight in both populations.
