Rationalising insecticide use in the control of wireworms : SRDC final report BS102S
|Abstract||This project aimed to develop a method to detect wireworms in pre-plant fallows, thus allowing rational decisions to be made on whether or not to use insecticide for wireworm control at planting. Insecticide would be used only when wireworm populations exceeded the level required to cause economic loss.|
