Franzmann, B.A. and Rossiter, P.D. (1974) Blue oat mite (Penthaleus major (Duges)) control trials in southern Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 31 (3). pp. 221-224.



In two field tests in Queensland in winter 1969, eight acaricides were applied as sprays for the control of Penthaleus major (Duges) on oats. Effective control was achieved with azinphos-ethyl, methidathion and diazinon at 35, 35 and 70 g/ha, respectively, the numbers of mites/10 tillers one and (in brackets) 14 days after treatment averaging 0.83 (5.83), 0 (0.67) and 0.5 (2.5), respectively, as compared with 43.7, 52.7 and 70.8 before treatment.
