Assessment of damage and control of Helopeltis clavifer (Heteroptera: Miridae) on tea in Papua New Guinea



Assessment of damage and control of Helopeltis clavifer (Heteroptera: Miridae) on tea in Papua New Guinea



Papua New Guinea Journal of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries 33(3/4): 123-131



A description is given of the severe damage caused by an outbreak of the mirid Helopeltis clavifer in tea in Papua New Guinea in 1977-78. The possible reasons for the outbreak are discussed. Spraying with endosulfan at 440 g a.i. in 60 litres water/ha gave good control. A simple, rapid method of estimating damage levels was developed and is outlined.
