Abstract:Many chemicals were tested, hath as seed and foliar treatments, for control of the beet leafhopper (Circulifer tenellus (Bak.)) and consequent reduction in curly top on snap beans grown for seed. Outstanding results were obtained with a foliar spray containing 0.125% Thimet® (O,O-diethyl S-(ethylthio)- methyl phosphorodithioate) and 4% juice pressed from sugar beets highly resistant to curly top. Good control was also obtained with DDVP, lindane-DDT-Aroclor, DDT, dimethoate, and Thimet separately. The seed treatments were less satisfactory.
