With the development of resistance to dieldrin by the Black Maize Beetle (Heteronychus ficas Klug), research has been intensified to screen alternative insecticides under both field and laboratory conditions in the search for chemicals for (a) applying at depth for control oflarvae, and (b) spraying on the soil surface to control adults. The results obtained from preliminary trials are presented, indicating that suitable alternatives to dieldrin are available for use in sugarcane to control… CONTINUE READING
