A comparison of the effectiveness of aldrin seed treatment for rice water weevil control on water and drill-seeded rice



A comparison of the effectiveness of aldrin seed treatment for rice water weevil control on water and drill-seeded rice



Jour Econ Ent 53(6): 1135-1137



A test was conducted in 1959 at the rice-pasture Experiment Station, Beaumont, Texas, to determine the effectiveness of aldrin seed treatment for rice water weevil (Lissorhoptrus oryzophilus) control when rice is drilled and water-seeded. Results indicate that both the 4- and 8-ounce rates of insecticide applications were equally effective when the rice was water- or drill-seeded. Increases of 570 pounds of rough rice/acre were obtained by controlling a population of 37.1 larvae/foot of row.
