Abstract:Dimethoate, carbofuran, monocrotophos, oxydemetonmethyl, phosalone, and Parathion, when applied at about the period of 1st bloom for reduction of Lygus hesperus (Knight) populations, increased yields by 1591 to 2780 kg/ha. The addition of a mid-season application contributed mainly to improved quality of the dry beans. A single mid-season treatment resulted in increased yields over untreated plants but was inferior to a single early application. During 1969-71 several unregistered insecticides (especially carbofuran, monocrotophos, and oxydemetonmethyl) were shown to be potentially useful for control of this bug.
