Tests of Chemical Control of the Cereal Leaf Beetle1,2
Stauffer N-2596 (S-(p-chlorphenyl) O-ethylphos- phonodithioate), and Fisons NC-6897 (2,3- (isopropylidenedioxy) phenyl methylcarbamate), showed promise, and the effectiveness of endosulfan; Allied GC-9160 (ethyl 1,1a,3,3a,4,5,5,5a,5b,6-decachlorooctahydro-2- hy-droxy-1,3,4-methano-2H-cyclobuta[cd]pentalene-2-levulinate); carbofuran; carbaryl; Landrin® (3,4,5-trimethy1-phenyl methylcarbamate, 75%; 2,3,5 trimethylphenyl methylcarbamate, 18%); and Stauffer N-4543 (O-isobutyl ethylphosphonodithioate S-ester with N - (mercaptomethyl) phthalimide), was confirmed for control of Oulema melanopus (L.) in oats in a series of field tests during 1968-70. Padan® (S,S' - [2- (dimethylamino) trimethlyene] bis (thiocarbamate), hydrochloride), Mobam® (benzo[b]thien-4-yl methylcarbamate), propoxur, Supracide® (S- (2-methoxy-5-oxo-△2-1,3,4 thiadiazolin-4-yl)- methyl) O,O-dimethyl phosphorodithioate), Allied GC- 6506 (dimethyl p- (methylthio) phenyl phosphate) , duPont 1410 (methyl N,N-dimethyl-N'-[ (methylcarbamoyl) oxy]-lthiooxamimidate) , and methomyl gave short residual protection of the plants. Cyolane® (cyclic ethylene P,P-diethyl phosphonoclithioimidocarbonate) showed evidence of inhibiting feeding of the larvae. Monocrotophos gave a slow kill of the pest. Fenitrothion, methyl parathion, spores of a Hungarian strain of Bacillus thruingiensis Berliner, phosalone, and Bithion® O,O'- (thiodi-p-phenylene) (O,O,O',O'-tetramethyl phosphorothioate), were unsatisfactory for control of the pest.
