Efficacy of Spirotetramat in the Control of Pear Psylla (Cacopsylla Pyri L.) on Pear Trees in Poland

Efficacy of Spirotetramat in the Control of Pear Psylla (Cacopsylla Pyri L.) on Pear Trees in Poland AbstractThe effectiveness of spirotetramat in the control of pear psylla (Cacopsylla pyri) on pear trees was investigated in five field experiments, carried out in years 2009- 2011. One or two treatments were applied in June; the first treatment in the early stage of larvae hatching from eggs deposited by females from the summer generation, whilst the second application was carried out about two weeks later. In all the experiments, spirotetramat as Movento 100 SC applied at a dose of 2.25 l/ha effectively reduced the pest population after only a single application (total reduction of larvae after one week post-treatment 75.3-91.4%, and 83.7-97.6% at two weeks posttreatment). Movento 100 SC applied after a single application at a lower dose of 1.8 l/ha had a slightly worse effect (the total reduction of larvae at one week posttreatment was at the level of 58.4-91.3%, and two weeks after application at the level of 56-92.6%) - but in this case only a few larvae at stages L4 and L5 were found on pear shoots. The effectiveness of spirotetramat at both doses after two applications was very high.In comparison with standard insecticides the efficacy of spirotetramat was higher or not significantly different. In two experiments the application of standard compounds such as diflubenzuron and novaluron was not effective in controlling pear psylla and therefore did not prevent damage to pear trees. This may suggest that local populations of the pest are resistant to these measures, especially since they have been used for many years to control other pests of pear trees http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Horticultural Research de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe effectiveness of spirotetramat in the control of pear psylla (Cacopsylla pyri) on pear trees was investigated in five field experiments, carried out in years 2009- 2011. One or two treatments were applied in June; the first treatment in the early stage of larvae hatching from eggs deposited by females from the summer generation, whilst the second application was carried out about two weeks later. In all the experiments, spirotetramat as Movento 100 SC applied at a dose of 2.25 l/ha effectively reduced the pest population after only a single application (total reduction of larvae after one week post-treatment 75.3-91.4%, and 83.7-97.6% at two weeks posttreatment). Movento 100 SC applied after a single application at a lower dose of 1.8 l/ha had a slightly worse effect (the total reduction of larvae at one week posttreatment was at the level of 58.4-91.3%, and two weeks after application at the level of 56-92.6%) - but in this case only a few larvae at stages L4 and L5 were found on pear shoots. The effectiveness of spirotetramat at both doses after two applications was very high.In comparison with standard insecticides the efficacy of spirotetramat was higher or not significantly different. In two experiments the application of standard compounds such as diflubenzuron and novaluron was not effective in controlling pear psylla and therefore did not prevent damage to pear trees. This may suggest that local populations of the pest are resistant to these measures, especially since they have been used for many years to control other pests of pear trees
