Elwan, E.A., Assem, S.M., Khewa, M.M., & Shalaby, M.S.I. 2005 Field evaluation of some pesticides for controlling Pulvinaria tenuivalvata (Newstead) (Homoptera: Coccidae) on sugarcane in Kom Ombo District, Aswan governorate.. Egyptian Journal of Agricultural Research 83(4): 1669-1679.

Notes: An experiment was conducted in Kom Ombo district, Aswan governorate, Egypt, during 2002 and 2003 to evaluate the efficacy of Chalinger (chlorfenapyr), Admiral (pyriproxyfen), Mospilan (acetamiprid), Actara (thiamethoxam), Marshal (carbosulfan), Orion (alanycarb) and Sulfer (sulfer) to control sugarcane soft scale, Pulvinaria tenuivalvata, infesting sugarcane fields. The pesticides were highly effective against insect populations in both years. Chalinger was the highest most effective compound against the nymphal populations (94.8%). Admiral and Mospilan came in the 2nd order (93.6 and 93.4%) followed by Marshal in the 3rd order (88.9%). Sulfer and Actara came in the 4th order (88.1% & 88%) and Orion was the last (86.8%). The efficacy of the evaluated pesticides on the adult populations showed that Chalinger, Admiral and Mospilan were the highest effective compounds on the adult populations (93.5, 92.5 and 91.9%) followed by Marshal in the 2nd order (86.6%). Sulfer, Actara and Orion were less effective pesticides on the adult populations (85.6, 84.6 and 83.5%). The efficiency of the tested pesticides on the insect populations (nymphs and adults) indicates that, Chalinger was the highest effective compound (94.6%) on the insect populations followed by Admiral and Mospilan in the 2nd order (93.4 and 93.1%). Marshal and Sulfer came in the 3rd order (88.2 and 87.7%), Orion was the last (86.6%).
