AbstractImidacloprid (Admire®) was applied at planting time in anticipation of providing aphid control in cabbage for spring harvest. In three commercially treated cabbage fields, Admire reduced the number of cabbage (Brevicoryne brassicae) and green peach aphids (Myzus persicae). Two rates of Admire, 10 and 20 oz/A appeared to be similar in performance for efficacy against aphids. Depth of placement of Admire in the soil below the seed appears to have some influence on the efficacy and consistency of performance. Much fewer aphids and greater consistency was observed when Admire was placed at 1-inch depth below the seed compared to 3- to 4-inches below the seed.
