dc.description.abstractSeveral new insecticide chemistries were evaluated and compared with standard chemistries for temporal and diagnostic mortality of cabbage looper in lettuce. Three field bioassays of small and large larval mortality were conducted at pre-thinning, thinning, and postthinning, stages of lettuce. The compounds with translaminar activity (Alert, Success, and Proclaim) appear to be have the most rapid "knockdown activity" with 100% mortality consistently occurring by 1 -2 DAT. Because of their rapid activity, a large proportion of larvae are found dead on the plants. The products that need to be ingested to cause larval mortality (Larvin Confirm, Neemix, Crymax, Cryolite, MP 062) generally varied significantly in temporal mortality and in efficacy against larvae. Unlike the translaminar products, a large proportion of larvae on were often found missing from treated plants. The results of this study provide basic guidelines concerning the activity and assessment of the performance of these materials in the field PCAs and growers will ultimately be able to develop specific use patterns for these materials within their individual lettuce pest management programs.
