Images From Multi-State Thrips Management Trials

— Written By

Rick and Brian have several very good thrips management trails in place. Here are images from the regional trial at Rocky Mount with Bailey. I have also included images with Georgia 06G. I will include the images from the programs trial in just a minute.

Image 3. Bailey with Cruiser Maxx followed by Orthene 21 days after planting or 14 days after emergence. I was incorrect yesterday (numerous times) but Brian sprayed 6 oz of Orthene on this trial rather than 10 oz. The higher rate was used in the “old programs” trial.
