Cosmopolites sordidus Germ. in banana plantations. Report on control experiments



Cosmopolites sordidus Germ. in banana plantations. Report on control experiments



El Salvador Direccion Gen Invest Agron Seccion Entomol Bol Tec 32: 1-8



Aldrin and dieldrin were used in the control tests. After 2 years the advantages of the treatment were observed. Treated plants yielded 30 fruits per cluster against 5-7 or no fruits at all in the non-treated plants. Both insecticides give similar results when applied at the time of planting, and spraying the seed and the hole.
