Abstract:In order to determine the role of granulated insecticides in the sweet corn insect-control program in New Jersey, experiments were conducted during the 1954-57 seasons. Of the materials used, 2½% heptachlor on attaclay and 1% parathion on tobacco were the most efficient, giving excellent control of European corn borer (Pyrausta nubilalis (Hbn.)), corn ear worm (Heliothis zea (Boddie)), and fall army worm (Laphygma frugiperda (J. E. Smith)), on corn in the whorl stage. Sprays or dusts are still necessary when the plants are in the ear stage, but as a supplement the applications of granulated insecticides can be of great value to the New Jersey sweet corn growers.
