Insecticides Applied at Planting Time for Control of Corn Rootworm1 Larvae in Nebraska2
Granular insecticide formulations were investigated in the field for control of larvae of Diabrolica spp. at Mead, Concord, and North Bend, Nebr, Studies over a 4-year period show that Bux® (3:1 mixture of m- (1-methylbutyl) phenyl methylcarbamate and m- (1- ethylpropyl) phenyl methylcarbamate), Dyfonate® (O-ethyl S-phenyl ethylphosphonodithioate), Dasanit® (O,O-diethyl O-[P- (methylsulfinyl) phenyl} phosphorothioate), Landrin® (3,4,5-trimethylphenyl methylcarbamate), Mocap® (O-ethyl S,S dipropyl phosphorodithioate), carbofuran and phorate applied at rates of 0.75-1.0 Ib active ingredient (AI) per acre provided acceptable com rootworm control when applied at planting time in 6-inch bands over the row. Diazinon applied at 1.0 Ib AI per acre g-ave inconsistent control with planting- applications. Carbaryl applied at 2.0 lb AI per acre and parathion at 1.0 Ib AI per acre did not provide effective rootworm control.
