Abstract:
Several studies were conducted in the spring and fall 2001 to evaluate a number of neonicotinoid compounds (Admire, Calypso, Actara, Platinum and dinotefuron) for whitefly control in spring and fall melons. The results of these studies demonstrate that several insecticide products are being developed that offer melon growers management alternatives for controlling whiteflies. The new foliar neonicotinoid Calypso (thiacloprid), shows excellent promise as a foliar, post-planting spray with 14-21 day residual. Further, no consistent negative interaction was detected between Platinum and fertilizer, 10-34-0 and UN 32, applied together as at-planting or side dress soil treatments. These treatments provided good whitefly control, but further research is needed to replicate these effects as Platinum has been labeled at lower rates than the manufacturer initially anticipated. At planting applications of Platinum at 8 oz (current labeled rate) did however provide acceptable residual control of whiteflies on fall melons under heavy population pressure.
