On the Control of the Lucerne Flea (Sminthurus viridis L.) in Lucerne in South Australia


On the Control of the Lucerne Flea (Sminthurus viridis L.) in Lucerne in South Australia



J. Dept. Agric. S. Aust, Adelaide, April 15 36(9): 994-1006



One of the chief difficulties in the establishment of a stand of clover or lucerne in South Australia is its protection from infestation by Smynthurus viridis, L., which is polyphagous and occurs throughout the areas of more abundant rainfall. The damage, which consists of a speckling of the leaves by the young nymphs and destruction of the green tissues by the older insects, is caused during the wet season, which usually occurs from April-May to September-October.
