  1. TL, tunnel length; SD, stem damage; KR, kernel resistance; PH, plant height; DTA, days to anthesis; DTS, days to silking.
  2. 1 Genotypic correlation coefficients were considered significant, *, when exceeded twice its standard error; NS, not significant.
  3. 2 Phenotypic correlation coefficients were considered significant, *, at 0.05 probability level according to Steel and Torrie [59]; NS, not significant.
