Abstract:Azodrin® (3-hydroxy-N-methyl-cis crotonamide dimethyl phosphate) and UC - 21149 (2-methyl-2- (methylthio) propionaldehyde 0- (methylcarbamoyl) oxime) were applied to cotton plants as stem and soil treatments in small-plot and greenhouse experiments for control of Lygus Hesperus Knight. In the small-plot tests, Azodrin, applied as a stem treatment, gave effective control between 2 and 9 days after treatment, and UC 21149, applied as a sidedness, gave effective control 9-16 days after treatment. The effectiveness of UC- 21149 seemed to increase after irrigation. In the green-house experiments, the periods of effective control were similar, but mortality of the test insects was somewhat higher.
