Control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in establishing rice crops using starch-based chlorpyrifos pellets



Control of chironomid larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) in establishing rice crops using starch-based chlorpyrifos pellets



Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 11(2 Pt 1): 206-210



Starch-based pellets containing 10% (w/w) chlorpyrifos were evaluated for control of chironomid larvae (particularly Chironomus tepperi) in rice crops immediately after flooding, in New South Wales, Australia. Chlorpyrifos pellets at rates of 2.0, 3.5 and 6.0 kg/ha (0.2, 0.35 and 0.6 kg a.i./ha), and, as a reference treatment, 150 ml/ha of 500 g/litre chlorpyrifos emulsifiable concentrate (EC) (0.075 kg a.i./ha) were evaluated.
