Illustrated guide to integrated pest management in rice in tropical Asia.
This guide to integrated pest management in rice in tropical Asia shows how rice cultivation and management techniques can be influenced by environmental factors such as temperature and agricultural practices. Expand
Identification of a New Blend of Apple Volatiles Attractive to the Apple Maggot, Rhagoletis pomonella
- A. Zhang, C. Linn, S. Wright, R. Prokopy, W. Reissig, W. Roelofs
- Journal of Chemical Ecology
- 1 June 1999
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify a new blend of volatiles from apples as the key attractants for… Expand
Interference with the Mate-Finding Communication System of the Obliquebanded Leafroller (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) Using Synthetic Sex Pheromones
The presence of gravid feral females, mated tethered females, high larval densities, and fruit damage within large pheromone disrupted blocks indicate obliquebanded leafrollers mate in orchards treated with synthetic sex phersomone. Expand
MARKING PHEROMONES DETERRING REPEATED OVIPOSITION IN RHAGOLETIS FLIES
Oviposition‐deterring, fruit‐marking pheromones in Rhagoletis pomonella and R. fausta are confirmed and their existence in five additional species is demonstrated and a laboratory population of R. pom onella cultured on apples for ca. Expand
Geographic Variation in Pheromone Chemistry, Antennal Electrophysiology, and Pheromone-Mediated Trap Catch of North American Populations of the Obliquebanded Leafroller
There was a trend of increasing antennal sensitivity to each of the four pheromone-gland compounds in moths from New York, Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia. Expand
Trap response and fruit damage by obliquebanded leafroller (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in pheromone-treated apple orchards in New York.
Pheromone disruptants were tested from 1989 to 1992 in western New York to determine effect on trap catch and potential use in the control of obliquebanded leafroller, Choristoneura rosaceana, and one application of a natural-blend formulation at 988 dispensers per hectare was better than 494/ha at disrupting trap catch of both flights that occur during the year.

Resurgence of Nilaparvata lugens (Stål)Populations as Influenced by Method and Timing of Insecticide Applications in Lowland Rice
Of the various methods of carbofuran application tested, foliar sprays were most active in inducing resurgence, andent of resurgence was highly influenced by time of insecticide application. Expand
Identification of apple volatiles attractive to the apple maggot,Rhagoletis pomonella
Apple volatiles from whole Red Delicious and Red Astrachan apples were found to be attractive to sexually mature apple maggot flies,Rhagoletis pomonella (Walsh), in wind tunnel bioassays and elicited similar behavioral and EAG responses. Expand
Rates and Effect of Resurgence-Inducing Insecticides on Populations of Nilaparvata lugens (Homoptera: Delphacidae) and its Predators
Populations of the N. lugens insect predators, Microvelia atrolineata and Cyrtorhinus lividipennis and predatory spiders were most depressed by the high rates of decamethrin. Expand
