Effect of fumigants on insect pests of stored grain

Effect of fumigants on insect pests of stored grain

Journal of Agricultural Research Lahore 27(1): 77-81

The fumigants Agtoxin (of unspecified composition), Phostoxin (aluminium phosphide, which evolves phosphine) (both at 3 g/t) and Delicia (of unspecified composition) (at 10 g/t) were tested in godowns in Pakistan and in the laboratory to investigate their effect on adults of Rhizopertha dominica and Tribolium castaneum and on adults and larvae of Trogoderma granarium in stored wheat grain.
