Cost and effectiveness of chemical insect control measures in farm stored kansas usa wheat

Cost and effectiveness of chemical insect control measures in farm stored kansas usa wheat

Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 63(3): 351-360

Randomly selected lots of farm-stored Kansas wheat were sampled at 65-day intervals to determine their physical and insect-related quality characteristics. The effectiveness and the total insect-related cost (including possible price discounts) of various recommended insect-control chemicals were determined. In November, lots that had been treated with a grain protectant or fumigant contained fewer live insects/100 g, on the average, than lots that had received neither treatment. In January, fumigated lots and lots that had received no chemical treatment contained a mean of 1.4 live insects/ 100 g, whereas the mean for protectant-treated wheat was 12.1. In the fall, malathion treatment was associated with the lowest, total, insect-related costs. However, in the winter, the lowest cost was associated with lots that had received no chemical treatment.
