Lets Revisit "Biorationals" and "Biopesticides", No More! Side Effects, Biologicals, Organic Chemistry, Graphene or Nanotechnology, It's Pico Time!

This was our first and last attempt in 2008 at these pests as we were into production, not controlling pests and we should of increased the rate from .5 to 1.0 and application program, but we still beat 7 of the 8 Biorationals for Marketability!

Squash: Cucurbita pepo var. “Yellow Crookneck”

Pickleworm; Diaphania nitidalis (Stoll)

Cucumber beetles; Diabroticaspp.

Squash bugs; Anasa spp.

Melon aphid; Aphis gossypii

Sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius)


EVALUATION OF BIO-RATIONAL INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS IN SQUASH, 2008: vs PICOTECHNOLOGY!

Yellow crook neck squash was direct seeded into 2 rows per 6-ft bare ground beds on June 16 and maintained with standard cultural practices at the Lang Farm, Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station at Tifton. A total of 500 lbs/a of 10-10-10 was applied at planting to Tift pebbly clay loam field plots followed by two side-dress applications of 115 lbs/a 34-0-0. Irrigation was applied weekly with an overhead sprinkler system. Six foliar applications of insecticide were made on June 24, 30, July 2, 8, 17, and 22. Scouting was initiated on July 2 and continued weekly through harvest. One sample of 6 plants, with one leaf per plant for whitefly and aphid counts, was scouted per plot after weekly applications. Squash was harvested from 40 ft of row on July 21 and 30 and fruit were categorized as marketable, pickleworm damage, or virus damaged and the average weight was measured. Data was analyzed using GLM and LSD tests for separation of means (SAS Institute 1990).


The best treatments in terms of melon aphid control early in the test were the Tyratech A, QRD 416 2qt rate, and “SoySoap treatments”. By the July 11, the NNI-0101 treatment had a delayed, but very strong effect on suppressing aphids while the other treatments were overwhelmed by a large aphid migration. Unfortunately, none of the treatments provided a strong reduction in the number of mosaic virus-affected squash fruit compared with the untreated check. Also, NNI-0101 tended to increase the incidence of pickleworm which may have offset the benefit of aphid control. Even so, NNI-0101 did provide the highest marketable yield followed by MOI-201 and the 2 qt rate of QRD416 in the first and second harvests. The aphid and pickleworm pressure during this test was very, causing the quality of squash from the check plot plants to be severely affected by the final harvest date (94% unmarketable). Most of the foliar treatments provided some benefit in terms of marketable squash, but under this heavy insect and virus disease pressure, more frequent sprays would have been required to improve yields. Most of the commercial cultivars of squash grown in southern Georgia during the summer include a transgenic resistance to mosaic viruses, but in this evaluation of bio-rational and/or organic treatments we used the standard open pollinated cultivar. In order to evaluate these treatments under a lower pressure scenario, an earlier spring planting would have to be conducted. One useful observation under this heavy insect pressure was that over all, none of the treatments significantly reduced the number of predatory arthropods.
