Comparison of Foliar-Applied Insecticides for Whitefly Control in Broccoli
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractWhitefly (Bemisia tabaci also known as B. argentifolii) control in fall planted broccoli is difficult to achieve with foliar-applied insecticides and two treatments were compared and demonstrated a relative reduction of the immature stage of whitefly. Capture® (bifenthrin) plus Thiodan® (endosulfan) as a tank-mix applied two times significantly reduced the number of whitefly immatures (9/leaf) compared to the untreated check (71/leaf). Provado® (imidacloprid) following two applications reduced the number of immature whiteflies by only slightly more than 50% (38/leaf).
