Abstract:
Confirm was evaluated in head lettuce for control of lepidopterous pests when applied by air, and when applied by ground at 4, 8 and 12 mph. By air Confirm may not provide commercially acceptable control when used alone. Confirm must be ingested to exhibit activity and aerial applications may not provide adequate spray coverage. When used by ground, applicators should avoid exceeding 8 mph, again because good spray coverage may be compromised.
