Results of several years of field evaluation indicate that demeton, parathion, parathion + tepp, endosulfan, or oxydemeton-methyl provide satisfactory control of Brevicoryne brassicae (l.), when used in a full-season preventive schedule on cabbage or cauliflower. On broccoli control of this insect is more difficult, and of the materials tested only a combination of parathion + tepp or parathion + endosulfan gave adequate control. Of 9 compounds tested in only one season on broccoli, only carbofuran and monocrotophos provided the high degree of control considered necessary in commercial production.
