Insecticidal Control of Agrotis infusa (Boisd.) and Leucania unipuncta (Haw.) in Field Crops

Insecticidal Control of Agrotis infusa (Boisd.) and Leucania unipuncta (Haw.) in Field Crops

Qd J. agric. Sci, Brisbane, 11: 1, 1-14

Euxoa (Agrotis) infusa (Boisd.) and Pseudaletia (Leucania) unipuncta (Haw.) damaged a wide range of crops in southern Queensland during July-August 1952, and since the arsenical baits and mechanical barriers hitherto used against such insects are laborious and difficult to apply, sprays of DDT were tested against both species, and other organic insecticides against E. infusa. The amounts of toxicants given were applied in 100 gals. spray per acre.
