dc.description.abstractStudies were replicated over 2 years to further evaluate the residual efficacy of several selective, reduced-risk compounds that are now registered for use in head lettuce. In most cases, the Success, Proclaim, Avaunt and Intrepid provided excellent seasonal efficacy against beet armyworm and cabbage looper larvae. Their performance at stand establishment and harvest were also examined. Based on the results of these studies and additional trials conducted over the past several years, we now have sufficient information for optimizing their uses in our lettuce pest management program. Because they are uniquely different insecticide chemistries, they can be rotated throughout the season to prevent the rapid buildup of resistance. A table was constructed that offers suggested uses for each compound throughout the season. The results are ultimately are aimed at assisting growers and PCA’s in making sound decisions on choosing compounds for use in controlling beet armyworm and cabbage looper in head lettuce.
