Nineteen band and broadcast insecticidal treatments were evaluated for wireworm control on potatoes. Analysis of paired-plot data indicated that several organo-phosphorus insecticides were effective in reducing wireworm populations and damage to the tubers. Among these were Bayer 25141 (O,O-diethyl O-[p-(methylsulfinyl) phenyl] phosphorothioate), diazinon, parathion, phorate and Zinophos® (O,O-diethyl O-2-pyrazinyl phosphorothioate). Niagara 10242 (2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-7-benzofuranyl methylcarbamate), a carbamate, also was effective. The data indicate that with good cultural practices the number of tubers per hill and their weight is not necessarily directly correlated with the degree of wireworm control.
