Efficacy and environmental fate of alphacypermethrin applied to rice fields for the control of chironomid midge larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae)



Efficacy and environmental fate of alphacypermethrin applied to rice fields for the control of chironomid midge larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae)



Field Crops Research 67(3): 263-272



Chironomid midge larvae are the most important pests affecting the establishment of aerially sown rice crops in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. The pyrethroid insecticide alpha-cypermethrin (Dominex 100 EC) was evaluated for the control of chironomid midge larvae in small plot field trials at Yanco Agricultural Institute during the 1997-98 and 1998-99 rice seasons. Treatments were applied at sowing (6 days after flooding) in both trials.
