In maize the number of microhairs per unit area of adaxial leaf surface of the youngest leaf almost doubled as salinity increased from zero to 120 mM NaCl, with a 50 % increase in the number of microhairs on the abaxial surface (Ramadan & Flowers, 2004).
Nymphs were mostly found on the adaxial surface rather than on the abaxial surface.
