Abstract:In 3 studies to control the cottonwood leaf beetle, Chrysomela Scripta F., and a clearwing borer, Paranthrene dollii (Neumögen), surface and subsoil applications of several dosages of carbofuran were tested on 1st-, and 2nd-year cottonwood improved nursery stock. Subsoil applications of 10% granules at 44.8 kg/ha provided effective control of C. scripta and decreased populations of P. dollii. Some of the clones tested appeared susceptible to insect attack.
