Local name- Gundhi bug.

Nature of damage:

2. Young succulent leaves and shoots are also attacked before the grain formation stage. Infestation is characterised by the presence of some empty or ill-formed grains in the panicles.

3. A hole is left on the grain at the point of puncture and around that hole a brownish spot develops causing discoloration of the panicles.
