Abstract:
Various rates of endosulfan and pennethrin were applied to cauliflower with electrostatic, hydraulic air- assist and conventional hydraulic spray systems. Sweetpotato whitefly abundance and plant growth were measured at several intervals during the study. In addition, spray coverage was measured with each insecticide application. No differences in whitefly control or spray deposition were observed among the three sprayers. However, imidacloprid, provided excellent control. The significance of the spray technologies for whitefly control and future modifications are discussed.
