Abstract:Leafhopper susceptibility to carbofuran and disulfoton applied to corn, Zea mays L., at 1 Ib AI/acre infurrow at planting in greenhouse tests was: Graminella nigrifrons (Forbes) > Dalbulus maidis (DeLong & Wolcott) Deltocephalus sonorus (Ball). Third-stage nymphs of D. maidis were more susceptible to carbofuran and disulfoton than 5th-stage nymphs or adults: adulls were the least sensitive. Carbofuran "'as more effective than disulfoton against all 3 species.
