Upland and Pima Cotton Demonstration Using IGR's Knack and Applaud to Control Silverleaf Whitefly at the Yuma Valley Ag Center in 1996
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe section 18 granted for the use of insect growth regulators in 1996 in Arizona provided an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the efficacy of the materials. Knack® (Pyriproxyfen) and Applaud® (Buprofezin) both demonstrated excellent control of whitefly in this demonstration. Efficacy of the insect growth regulators was monitored by using the "Ellsworth-Naranjo" methods of measuring adult and nymph whitefly numbers. This method provided good tracking of the populations throughout the period monitored. The areas treated were cotton variety trials both pima and upland. On the upland trial whitefly infestation data was collected on each variety. Hairy leaf varieties tended to have higher whitefly numbers of both adults and nymphs.
