    • Control of seedcorn maggot, cabbage maggot, and black cutworm (1975 insecticide research report) 

      Eckenrode, C.; Robbins, P.; Webb, D. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976-06)
      This pest threatens the germinating seeds of a number of crops, particularly in the spring when soils are cool and wet. A high content of organic matter in the soil increases the probability for an infestation. Once the ...
    • An Improved Screen Cone Trap for Monitoring Activity of Flying Insects 

      Throne, J.; Robbins, P.; Eckenrode, C. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
      The traps, as originally described, are difficult to build because the components are soldered together, and the traps must be replaced after three to four summers' use because of rusting. We report here a modified ...

    • Predicting Cabbage Maggot Flights in New York Using Common Wild Plants 

      Pedersen, L.; Eckenrode, C. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
      The purpose of this study was to correlate blooming of wild plants commonly seen near cabbage fields with cabbage maggot flights to provide growers with an accurate prediction tool so that timely applications of ...
    • Seedcorn Maggot Injury 

      Vea, E.; Webb, D.; Eckenrode, C. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975-05)
      This report describes and illustrates varying levels of seedcorn maggot damage on eight susceptible crops. We hope that this will aid in the diagnosis of maggot injury.
    • Simplified rearing and bioassay for the seedcorn maggot, Hylemya platura (Meigen) 

      Webb, D.; Eckenrode, C. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978-06)
      Before 1926, Leach (7) was able to rear larvae of the seedcorn maggot (SCM), now known as Hylemya platura (Meigen), on potatoes or beef extract agar inoculated with the causal organism of potato blackleg, Erwinia ...
