Control of sorghum shootfly with insecticides applied as seed treatment or in furrows



Control of sorghum shootfly with insecticides applied as seed treatment or in furrows



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 51(11): 799-802



Field trials were carried out in India during the rainy seasons of 1975 and 1976 to determine the effectiveness of some insecticides applied as seed treatments or in furrows against the sorghum pest Atherigona soccata Rond. Seed treatments with chlordimeform (chlorphenamidine) and acephate were ineffective against the pest and also adversely affected seed germination.
