Field evaluation of carbaryl and malathion for the control of potato tuberworm Phthorimaea operculella Zeller (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae), and green peach aphid, Myzus persicae Sulzer (Homoptera-Aphididae)



Field evaluation of carbaryl and malathion for the control of potato tuberworm Phthorimaea operculella Zeller (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae), and green peach aphid, Myzus persicae Sulzer (Homoptera-Aphididae)



Libyan Journal of Agriculture 6(2): 7-11



Carbaryl 50% wettable powder and malathion 50% emulsifiable concentrate when sprayed at the rate of 6.6 kg/ha and 5.3 l/ha, respectively, effectively controlled Ph. operculella in the foliage of nine potato varieties. Little direct control of tuber infestation was achieved except in Alpha and Arran Banner.Malathion gave better control of M. persicae and was superior to carbaryl in all varieties except Ulster Sceptre.
