Shepherd, R.C.H. and Champ, B.R. (1965) Protection of stored potato tubers against Phthorimaea operculella (Zell.). Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 22 (4). pp. 519-522.



Malathion, diazinon and fenchlorphos were tested as protectants against larvae of a DDT-lindane resistant strain of Phthorimaea operculella. Only malathion gave results which warranted further testing. Of the common insecticides tested, only malathion at >2% was considered a possible treatment against the DDT-resistant larvae of the potato tuber moth (P. operculella).
