A study was conducted during 1997 and 1998 in New South Wales, Australia to demonstrate the levels of damage by the lucerne flea, S. viridis, in the Hunter region and to provide recommendations for ecologically based management of lucerne flea and other species in irrigated lucerne. Chlorpyrifos was used in tests of three control strategies, each of which effectively reduced lucerne flea numbers.
