Evaluation of three NRDC pyrethroids against the sugar-cane froghopper Aeneolamia varia saccharina (Dist.) (Cercopidae) in Trinidad
Tyrone J. Gopee
Three members of the NRDC series of synthetic pyrethroids, decamethrin, permethrin and cypermethrin, were evaluated for contact toxicity and field efficacy against the sugar-cane froghopper, Aeneolamia varia saccharina (Dist.). The baseline toxicological data and field evaluation of these pyrethroids are presented and field application rates are recommended.
