dc.description.abstractFour insecticides were evaluated for their effect on onion seed production in Yuma County where two species on thrips (western flower and onion) were present in seed fields. Visual differences between treatments resultant from onion thrips damage was evident within 10 days after treatments were applied at flower opening. Lorsban, Ammo and Capture treatments provided control of onion thrips based on condition of seed heads. Only Ammo and Capture treatments increased seed yield as the Lorsban treatment was thought to repel bees which are needed for pollination. Pyrethroid treatments yielded 40% more than the untreated check. Damage from onion thrips to onion seed in Yuma County is conservatively calculated to currently be at least $1.1 million annually.
