Effect of spring burning of intermediate wheatgrass on some insect pest populations and yield



Effect of spring burning of intermediate wheatgrass on some insect pest populations and yield



Forage Notes 37: 54-55



Spring burning of intermediate wheatgrass stubble in southern Alberta, Canada, in 1988 reduced some pest insect populations and significantly increased seed yield. Peak numbers of insect pests varied with species and time of season. Significantly more of the mirid Trigonotylus coelestialium were collected from irrigated burned plots compared with irrigated unburned ones (4.28 vs. 0.36 per 30 x 10 m plot).
