Seasonal phenology and distribution in soil in sugarcane fields of the pink ground pearl Eumargarodes laingi Jakubski, with notes on Promargarodes spp. (Hemiptera: Margarodidae)
The distribution of cysts of Eumargarodes laingi in soil and the seasonal phenology of the different life stages were examined in sugarcane fields near Bundaberg.
Farming practices for managing Inopus rubriceps (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) in sugarcane in Australia
Larvae of the sugarcane soldier fly, Inopus rubriceps (Macquart), attack the roots of sugarcane in Australia, reducing crop yields and forcing the premature removal of crops. Manipulation of farming practices may help to ...
Tolerance of sugarcane clones to feeding by Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae).
Large differences in ratooning were observed between sugarcane clones in a variety trial that became infested with larvae of the sugarcane soldier fly Inopus rubriceps. To investigate this apparent resistance, pot experiments ...
Effectiveness of some controlled-release insecticides against larvae of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae), a pest of Australian sugarcane.
The biological activity of insecticides formulated as controlled-release plastic granules was evaluated against larvae of the sugarcane soldier fly Inopus rubriceps in laboratory bioassays.
Growth and survival of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) on different crop plants
Larvae of the sugarcane soldier fly Inopus rubriceps fed on plants in the families Gramineae, Cruciferae, Cucurbitaceae (but not zucchini), Leguminosae, and Solanaceae in a pot experiment.
Population dynamics of sugarcane soldier fly in the Mackay region
Populations of soldier fly, potential predators, other soil fauna and various abiotic factors were studied in eleven canefields and 2 grasslands during 1998 2001, corresponding to the plant crop to young third ratoon of ...
Field response of sugarcane cultivars to sugarcane soldier fly, Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae).
Ten commercial sugarcane cultivars were planted in 10 replicate plots in each of three field trials in southern Queensland, to evaluate their response to the sugarcane soldier fly Inopus rubriceps.
Attempted suppression of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) by application of insecticides to plant crops of sugarcane.
Management of sugarcane soldier fly Inopus rubriceps in sugarcane ratoons was attempted by applying insecticides soon after planting, to reduce the breeding population within fields.
Effect of fungicides and insecticides applied during planting of sugarcane on viability of Metarhizium anisopliae and its efficacy against white grubs.
The entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin is used for control of white grubs (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in sugarcane fields in Queensland, Australia. Eight fungicides and three liquid ...
