    Reduced population growth and delayed development of the cigarette beetle (Coleoptera: anobiidae) due to thuringiensin

    USDA-ARS, Oxford, NC, USA
    Three formulations of thuringiensis, the heat-stable á-exotoxin of Bacillus thuringiensis, were incorporated into diet medium (finely ground tobacco) of first instar cigarette beetles, Lasioderma serricorne (F.). At 15 and 60 ppm (wt a.i./wt diet medium), ...

    Freezing of tobacco display samples for disinfestation of the cigarette beetle (Coleoptera : Anobiidae)

    USDA-ARS, Crops Research Lab, Oxford, NC, USA
    Freezing was studied as a means of disinfesting tobacco display samples (TDSs) of live cigarette beetles, Lasioderma serricorne (F.). In an initial study of temperatures from 0, all adults were killed by a 24-h exposure, but ...

    Evaluation of flue-cured tobacco breeding lines for improved sucker control with maleic hydrazide

    USDA-ARS, Crops Research Lab, Oxford, NC, USA
    Residues of maleic hydrazide (MH) used to control suckers (axillary buds) in the production of flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) pose a problem in the marketability of the cured leaf. This study was conducted to determine if sucker control could ...

    Effect of MH application time on methanol soluble and insoluble residues in flue-cured tobacco

    USDA-ARS, Crops Research Lab, Oxford, NC, USA
    Field experiments were conducted for two years with maleic hydrazide (MH) in a chemical sucker control program to determine the relationship between the degree of control and the time of day that the MH was applied; and to determine the relationship ...
