Control of diamondback moth in Southeast Asia by profenofos






Diamondback Moth Management Proceedings of the First International Workshop, Tainan, Taiwan, 11-15 March, 1985: 289-295

Control of diamondback moth in Southeast Asia by profenofos

The physico-chemical characteristics and biological properties of profenofos are described. The efficacy of profenofos against the yponomeutid Plutella xylostella on cabbage and Chinese kale was assessed in field studies in the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan. High volume spray applications at 7- and 10-day intervals at 0.25-0.5 kg a.i./ha effectively reduced the population of larvae of P. xylostella. Yields of treated plots were increased by 40-100% compared to untreated plots.
