Cotton Aphid Management Using Admire

P. S. McNally, A. C. Scoggan, J. W. Mullins


This paper summarizes additional studies conducted throughout the United States on Miles' Admire (Imidacloprid, NTN 33893) during 1991 and 1993. These studies further investigated the performance of Admire for the control of cotton aphids and plant bugs through foliar as well as soil applications.

Where organo-phosphate, endosulfan, and pyrethroid tolerance have been present, foliar applications of Admire have achieved excellent suppression of cotton aphid. Control has commonly extended to 14-21 days. Cotton aphid control lasting at least 48 days has been demonstrated with a sidedress application. Residual control of Lygus hesperus has been observed in cage trials in California while field control of Lygus lineolaris was achieved in Alabama by the rate of 1.4 oz. AI/A. Field studies have shown comparable increases in retained squares relative to pyrethroids.
