Hylemya brassicae (Bouché) can no longer be controlled with aldrin, dieldrin, chlordane, or lindane in western New York. The level of resistance is different in 2 areas tested. Diazinon provided fair control in furrow or drench applications to radish but did not prove satisfactory as a preplanting broadcast application at 4 Ib per acre. Bay 37289 (O-ethyl 0-2.4,5-trichlorophenyl ethylphosphonothioate) and Stauffer N-2790 (O-ethyl Sphenyl ethylphosphonodithioate) were the most effective materials tested. No control was provided by Bay 77488 (0,0- diethylphosphorothioate O-ester with phenylglyoxylonitrile oxime), Temik® (a 10% granular formulation of DC 21149 (2-methyl-2-(methylthio)propionaldehyde O-(methylcarbamoyl) oxime)), NIA-I0242 (2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-7- benzofuranyl methylcarbamate), Zolone® (O,O-diethylphosphorodithioate S-ester with 6-chloro-3- (mercaptomethyl) - 2-benzoxazolinone), Zinophos® (O,O-diethyl O-2-pyrazinyl phosphorothioate) , American Hoechst Corp. 2838 (1,2,3,4,- 7,7 -hexachloro-5- (2,2,3,3-tetrafluorocyclobutyl) -2-norbornene) , and Lannate® (methyl N-[ (methylcarbamoyl) oxy]- thioacetimidate).
