Results of DPX-MP062 Efficacy Trials on Cotton Bollworm (Helicoverpa Zea) and Tobacco Budworm (Heliothis Virescens) in Texas

Robert H. Bierman


DPX-MP062 has been given the trademame "STEWARD" (proposed) and is being developed for Lepidoptera (worm) control in cotton and certain vegetables and fruits. This new and novel insecticide will belong to the proposed chemical class, Oxadiazine; the proposed common name is Indoxacarb. "STEWARD" has a low use rate and favorable environmental and toxicological profiles. The primary route of entry is through ingestion and it is also active through contact. In four 1997 Texas trials, "STEWARD" gave excellent control of tobacco budworm (Heliothis virescens) and cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa zea) at rates of 0.065 to 0.11 lb. ai/A.
