New Spray Adjuvant Increases the Efficacy of Cotton Insecticides
Mar 5, 2019

Crop Protection WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT
Vicchem EOP was evaluated with several insecticides for control of crickets and aphids. In laboratory studies, EOP enhanced the efficacy of betacyfluthrin and deltamethrin three-fold against crickets compared to dimethoate and carbaryl. In field studies, EOP increased the activity of imidacloprid on aphids in cotton but no enhancement was seen with dimethoate against aphids on peas. The enhanced activity may be due to EOP extending the liquid state of certain insecticides in the spray deposit that would increase contact with the insects and possibly enhance cuticular penetration
