Comparison of FCR 4545, Baythroid 2EC, Karate 1EC and Karate 2.09 SC to Other Commonly Used Insecticees for the Control of Boll Weevil (Anthonomus Grandis)

Harry B. Meyers, Donald R. Johnson and Larry M. Page


Commonly used insecticides and numbered compounds were tested for efficacy against the boll weevil in two complete tests. Baythroid at a rate of 0.028-lb AI and FCR4545 at a rate of 0.016-lb AI performed the best in the first test. Additionally in the first test Karate and Karate SC both at a rate of 0.025-lb AI had similar control but lagged slightly behind that of Baythroid and FCR4545. In the second test Baythroid at a rate of 0.028-lb AI and EXP61096 at the low and high rate performed the best.
