Abstract:
A field study was conducted at Yuma in 1991 to examine the relative effectiveness of several formulations of Bacillus thuringiensis on beet armyworm and cabbage looper on seedling and pre-cupping lettuce. Several applications were made before and after thinning. Results of the study suggest that most formulations are capable of controlling small larvae. However, because of the inherent variation in beet armyworm dispersion, it was difficult to statistically attribute differences in pest levels due to insecticide efficacy.
