Field studies were conducted in southwestern Mexico to determine the effect of three plastic mulch colours (black, white, and clear) on aphid populations, soil temperature, and on fruit yield of watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris Schard.). Aphids were counted on alternate days in traps placed on the mulched beds. Aphids were least numerous on the clear mulch and most numerous on the bare soil. Maximum soil temperatures under clear polyethylene reached 38.5°C and were 1.0, 4.5, and 4.2°C greater… Expand
