Abstract:Efficacy of carbofuran in controlling chinch bug. Blissus leucopterus leucopterus (Say), and greenbug, Schizaphis graminum (Rondani). in seedling sorghum was studied under three tillage systems in two crop rotations. No consistent pattern of lower or greater efficacy occurred under any tillage practice. However, lower efficacy was achieved where carbofuran was applied every year on continuous sorghum than where it was applied every other year when sorghum was grown in a sorghum/soybean rotation.
