Abstract:
The new insecticide Imidacloprid (NTN 33893), which is currently being developed for use on vegetable crops, was evaluated on broccoli for control of aphid species. Studies conducted in the spring of 1991 showed that this material applied postemergence as a granular formulation was extremely effective in preventing aphid colonization throughout the season. Aphid control and broccoli yields were significantly greater in plots treated with Imidacloprid. Due to low numbers of aphids in 1992, we were unable to detect differences in aphid numbers between Imidacloprid treatments and the untreated control.
