Floating rowcovers improve germination and reduce carrot weevil infestations in carrot



Floating rowcovers improve germination and reduce carrot weevil infestations in carrot



Hortscience: 5, 1619-1622



A lightweight agrotextile floating rowcover (10 g.m<sup>-2</sup>) designed for insect control was evaluated for its potential to reduce carrot weevil (<i>Listronotus oregonensis</i> (Le conte)) damage and to improve germination and carrot (<i>Daucus carota</i> L.) yield. The floating rowcover had no effect on total emergence and spread on emergence time but decreased emergence time by 0.5 day.
