Diamondback moth control in late season Chinese cabbage

Gregg S. Nuessly,, University of Florida, Everglades Research and Education Center, 3200 East Palm Beach Rd, Belle Glade, FL

Late spring season diamondback moth control in cabbage crops is frequently difficult in southern Florida. Reported here are results of April through May 2005 trial using standard insecticides, as well as BAS320, for control of Plutella xylostella. SpinTor, Avaunt and the high rate of BAS320 provided effective diamondback moth control. The addition of non-ionic surfactants to the spray mixture improved P. xylostella control.

Species 1: Lepidoptera Plutellidae Plutella xylostella (Diamondback Moth)
