Field tests were conducted in westein Kansas during 1963 to evaluate the effectiveness of various insecticides for the control of the army cutworm, Chorizagrotis auxiliaris (Grote), infesting winter wheat. Endosulfan at 0.5, endrin at 0.2, and dieldrin at 0.375 lb active ingredient per acre were more effective than the other materials tested. Better control was obtained by aerial application than by ground application, probably because larger plots resulted in less reinfestation from untreated plots.
