Abstract:Systemic insecticides effectively control certain sucking pests of cotton; however, none adequately control the major chewing insect pests. The materials available, used according to currently prescribed methods, do not appear to translocate in adequate concentrations to protect susceptible plant growth from insects such as boll weevils, Anthonomns grandis Boheman; bollworms, Heliothis zea (Boddie) ; and tobacco budworms, Heliothis virescens (F.). That the insecticidal activity of organophosphorus insecticides can be substantially increased with certain synergists is well documented (Hoffman et al. 1954, Sun and Johnson 1960, Plapp and Eddy 1961, Plapp et al. 1963). The object of the work reported herein was to seek combinations of synergists and systemic insecticides that would be effective when applied directly to boll weevils, and thus might be used to enhance on-plant control.
