Abstract:The cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni(Hübner), is one of the most damaging insect pests on cruciferous crops in Florida. When larvae become half grown and numerous (from 2 to 15/plant) control is nearly impossible. Tests have been conducted on control of loopers on cabbage in Florida (Greene et al. 1969, Workman and Greene 1970), and Chalfant (1969) reported on control of insects on collards in Georgia. Results obtained on control of cabbage loopers on collards during 1969 and 1970 at Hastings and 1970 at Sanford, Fla., are reported here.
