Three Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) listed foliar treatments for control of striped cucumber beetle in cucumbers were compared at the University of Massachusetts Crops Research and Education Center in South Deerfield, MA. Each material was tested alone and in combination with the other materials. Treatments included spinosad (Entrust 80W), pyrethin (PyGanic EC 5.0), and kaolin clay (Surround WP). Control plots were treated with water. Untreated seeds of 'Marketmore' pickling…

Horticultural Production Systems Influence Ground Beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) Distribution and Diversity in Cucurbits
TLDR
It is suggested that strip-tillage production systems support a richer, more diverse carabid community, demonstrating that even within intensive annual horticultural systems, production practices can play a critical role in shaping the beneficial arthropod community.
Comparative Efficacy of Common Active Ingredients in Organic Insecticides Against Difficult to Control Insect Pests
TLDR
Entrust was the most effective control option for many insect pests, particularly providing >75% control of flea beetles, Colorado potato beetle, cabbageworms and alfalfa weevil, but was relatively ineffective against true bugs and aphids.
