Abstract:Diflubenzuron (N-[[ (4-chlorophenyl) amino]carbonyl]- 2,6-difluorobenzamide), an insect growth inhibitor, was applied at 0.22 and 2.2 kg AI/ha to 'Deltapine 16' cotton in field cages. There was no control of the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders), but excellent control of the cotton leafperforator, Bucculatrix thurberiella Busck, at both rates of application, and control of the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hübner), at the highest rate.
