Control of codling moth in the Stanthorpe district of Queensland

Bengston, M. (1969) Control of codling moth in the Stanthorpe district of Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 26 (4). pp. 603-607.



During the 1963-64 to 1965-66 seasons three spray trials were carried out to determine the value of new insecticides for the control of codling moth ( Cydia pomonella (L.)) in apple orchards in the Stanthorpe district. Materials tested were applied according to a commercial spray programme. Those tested were aminocarb, azinphos-methyl, Cidial, Carbamult, fenitrothion, lythidathion, methidathion, methiocarb, phosalone and Union Carbide 10854. Azinphos-methyl, methidathion and phosalone were the better treatments and have been recommended for codling moth control in the Stanthorpe district. Methiocarb substantially thinned Granny Smith apples.
