Abstract:Dicofol dusts and carbophenothion spray when applied aircraft failed to control the two spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, on field beans. Monocrotophos at rates of 0.5, 0.75, and 1 lb/acre, Tartan® (0,0- diethyl phosphorothioate S-ester with N- (I-cyano-I- methylethyl) -2-mercaptoacetamide) at lib/acre, and Nemacur P® (ethyl 4- (methylthio) -m-tolyl isopropylphosphoramidate) at 1 lb/acre (all applied with a portable boom sprayer) gave good control of mites. Dicofol at 1 lb/acre (also applied with a portable boom sprayer) was nearly as effective in controlling mites as monocrotophos at ¾ lb/acre.
