Abstract:Over a period of 3 years field tests were conducted to determine the effectiveness of Thiodan®, identified chemically as 6,7,8,9,10,- 10-hexachloro-1,5,5a,6, 9,9a-hexahydro-6,9-methano-2,4,3-benzodioxathiepin- 3-oxide, against foliage infesting insects on potatoes. Results of these tests demonstrated that this material gave excellent control of aphids, potato flea beetle (Epitrix cucumeris (Harr.)), potato leafhopperm, (Epoasca fabae (Harr.)), and Colorado potato beetle (Leptitarsa decemlineata (Say)) on both an early variety and a late variety of potatoes. Thiodan was found to be compatible with such fungicides as Dithane (nabam), copper ox chloride sulfate (COCS), and Bordeaux mixture.
