Abstract:
The sweet potato whitefly is an insect whose economic importance is continually expanding as it becomes a more efficient vector, increases its fecundity and broadens its host range. To keep pace with its ability to develop resistance to existing classes of pesticides, we have undertaken a program to examine the effectiveness of pesticides with novel chemistries and novel modes of action. Several have shown themselves to be very effective against the various life stages of the sweet potato whitefly. Once these are incorporated in to our arsenal of pesticides, we hope to be able to manage resistance by prudently using these new materials.
