Economic considerations in sunflower pollination and insecticide application for control of the sunflower moth (Homoeosoma electellum)


Economic considerations in sunflower pollination and insecticide application for control of the sunflower moth (Homoeosoma electellum)



American Bee Journal 123(3): 211-214



ISSN/ISBN: 0002-7626

A study in Wyoming, USA, showed that yields of 3 hybrid varieties of sunflower were increased if crops were pollinated by insects, especially by honeybees; the value of insect pollination is estimated to be $84.64 per acre The economic damage caused by various population levels of the pest Homeosoma electellum, the sunflower moth, was also estimated. If the cost of applying insecticide is $5.17 per acre spraying is economically worthwhile when moth populations reach 2 per 5 flower heads.
