Your rating: None

Onion thrips (Thrips tabaci Lindeman) are dual destructive as both pests and vectors of Tospo viruses. Thrips tabaci has impact on a wide range of crops. Thrips damage, thrips count, leaf parameters, tolerance, susceptibility and onion yield of thirteen onion genotypes and three commercial onion cultivars were tested. The results of TAUIPC (Total Area Under Infestation Pressure Curve) showed that the accessions having their average leaf damage below two namely VIO38552, VIO38512 and AVON 1067 were categorized as the most tolerant accessions among the tested genotypes.

Average: 5 (2 votes)
Your rating: None


Why does a pesticide work well one time and not so well the next when everything seems the same? Variable weather could play a role. Or the pest could be less susceptible to the active ingredient. At other times, an inconsistent pesticide performance seems inexplicable.

Minimizing pesticide drift in vineyards

4
Average: 4 (1 vote)
Your rating: None


Disease and insect control is a critical factor in most commercial vineyards. Whilst such control may, in some seasons, be a small proportion of crop value, there is a demand from growers for increased efficiency of spraying. Attention to detail is necessary to improve efficiency of deposition, reduce drift and increase sprayer output.
