Abstract/Contents:"Conventional and biological insecticides were evaluated for control of BCW larvae on a golf course creeping bentgrass fairway in Lincoln, Nebraska. The turf (100% creeping bentgrass) was maintained at a mowing height of 0.5 inches... Field condition at the study site were: soil type, silty clay loam; soil organic matter, 3-5%; soil pH, 6.7; water pH, 7.0. Soil moisture was adequate throughout the study. Plots were 6 x 8 ft and the experimental design was a randomized complete block with 4 replications. Insecticide treatments were applied on 14 Jul 1994. BCW were recorded as they appeared on the turf surface...All treatments resulted in statistically significant reductions in BCW numbers. All treatment combinations of Talstar F with M-pede, Orthene or Turplex provided excellent (>98%) control. Limited cutworm reduction provided by the Bacillus thuringiensis formulations may have been due, in part, to the relatively short interval between product application and evaluation. No phytotoxicity was observed."
