Abstract:Thimet and Bayer 19639 were tested as seed treatments and as granules in the furrows to protect winter-wheat seedlings from grasshopper damage until they could become established. Greenhouse tests with seed treated with one-half pound of Thimet or 1 pound of Buyer 19639 per 100 pounds of seed gave good kills of adults for 4 weeks. Similar results were obtained from granules in a furrow treatment. Stands were materially reduced by seed treatment but were not affected by granule treatment. In a field test with treated seed the plants reached the three-leaf stage with little injury.
