Bulk-grain gamma irradiation for control of insects infesting wheat

Bulk-grain gamma irradiation for control of insects infesting wheat

Journal of Economic Entomology. 65: 3, 818-821

The following is substantially the authors' abstract. About 122 metric tons of heavily infested stored wheat was exposed to y-radiation from radioactive cobalt (60Co) at doses of 27.4 and 41.2 krad in a bulk-grain irradiator in Georgia in 1968 in order to control Sitophilus oryzae (L.), Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) and Cryptolestes spp. The abundance of all the pests was greatly reduced after irradiation at either dose, and control was judged to be satisfactory.
