Smith, W.A. and Saunders, G.W. (1956) Technical notes. Tomato mite control. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 13 (1). pp. 63-65.



This experimental work in the Bowen district and observations on commercial control demonstrate that Vasates lycopersici (Massee) in tomato crops can be controlled by parathion or sulphur schedules. Taking into account local field conditions and crop, the sulphurs were recommended for use on tomatoes (Smith 1955 a) and parathion for the control of the Eriophyid and Tetranychid mites on tobacco in south-western Queensland (Smith 1955 b).
