Biorationals for Management of Lepidopteran Pests of Fresh-Market Sweet Corn
Much of the sweet corn in the Hudson Valley is treated by aircraft, which is sometimes problematic to those living in proximity to treated fields. If biorational insecticides were being sprayed instead of ‘hard’ insecticides, such as pyrethroids, aerial application might be more readily accepted. Relative efficacies of present and near-future biorationals have to be determined before they will be seriously considered for NY management programs.
