Insecticides for Seed Orchards--A Case Study in Applied Research
Abstract:In 1973 the control of cone and seed insects was the most serious problem facing the seed orchard manager, but no pesticides were registered for that particular use. The Southern Seed Orchard Pest Committee was formed to address itself to this problem. Through a cooperative effort of industry, universities, state, and federal organizations, some of the major problems were solved and registration of two insecticides obtained in slightly less than three years.
